Some organizations have been validating the performance of a sealant tested in accordance with an ASTM Test Method performed by a certified laboratory on a product obtained from the marketplace, at some stated movement, on specific substrates, and indicating whether a primer was used.

The committee would like to define validation to provide clarification for the industry.
