@littlebee01cn,
Can you give more context please?

I have found a few things it could mean.

What is the field you are looking at?

@dlowan,
Thanks dlowan.
The field is mechanical quality management.
More context sentences are for your reference:

The materials files should also be included in the final overall quality file. In all cases, the quality documents sent by the prime supplier must be checked, validated and initialled by the prime supplier, at the latest when the quality file is assembled.

'validated' would likely mean that the quality has been assured. 'initialed' is like signing ones name. Imagine my name is John Smith. My signature would be some form of that name. Initialed would simply mean that I would write JS, which are the initials, the first letters of my first and last name. Some people initial with the the first letters of all their names, eg. John Joseph Smith - JJS.

@littlebee01cn,
Hi Bee - review your documents carefully and see if you can locate an ISO number anywhere; it's the international standard, e.g.:
Quote:
..Validation " an approval according to objective evidences that the requirements for the product intended use are fulfilled.

Revalidation " a re-approval of validation in case there any changes occurred within the process, a change of equipment, a change in human resources, raw material " anything that may affect the product.

Got it. It is indeed a combined standard.

Little Bee - always look for an ISO number in specs if engaged in international trade; works for much of domestic commerce as well, in China (where you are located, right?) and in western countries. Glad we could be of help - feel free to come back Smile
