Process Challenge Device

I am in the process of validating a new sterilization process (not EO, Steam or Hydrogen Peroxide). We cannot identify a PCD for the process. What validation strategy can I use for my sublethal cycle? The product bioburden is lower that the spore population of the BI (10^-6) Is the use of a PCD a requirement or recommendation?

Any literature on this would be appreciated?
