You should follow for MW processing the same procedure you follow for any "traditional" tissue processing.
What you have to document is that when you started to use the MW processing there was a documented QC to compare the results between the method you used and the new with the MW processor.
Having to sign a QC after each run is absolutely unnecessary if the initial QC was done.

Does anyone know what the compliance is, if any, with JACHO or CAP regarding the pathologist doing a paper QC on each microwave run?  We have been having them sign a QC sheet that we hand in with each microwave run and our looking at ways to rid our area of some of the unnecessary paperwork!
