Notes to answerer
Asker: Do you mean 'proof' (instead of 'prove')?

Asker: OK, thanks, that fits the context well. Just found another sentence: "Das Ergebnis dieses Testdrucks ist ein sogenannter OK-Bogen."

Asker: Thans for the suggestion Nicole. In the meantime I found several original sources with 'OK sheet' so am going with that
