You will find valuable hints on how to validate laboratory equipment in the USP under General Chapters - these chapters include a chapter on Chromatography, and another on Spectroscopy.

A manufacture can assure through careful validation and design processes,process controls,that there is high probability that all manufactured will meet specification..basic principle of validation include to establish that the process equipment has the capability of operating within required parameters.
FrankBales has provided three major article which helps to understand detail information about validation of analytical procedure,validation of chromatographic process,validation for spectrometer.I just bookmark these three article,really helps for growing my knowledge..Thanks for sharing
