The 2011 Ed. of Prudent Practices suggests that:

General-purpose laboratory vacuum pumps should have a record of use to prevent cross-contamination or reactive chemical incompatibility problems.  

Q1: Are you requiring this in your academic, governmental or private laboratories?
Q2: If no, why not?
Q3: If yes, how are you handling this..
