Hi Toshihiro,
I`m not sure if there is an official document with approval, but deduplication is a pretty solid feature.
There is a checksum that verifies data integrity during every job run to avoid mistakes. You can also leverage recoverability verification to make sure backups are ready to restore with no issues.
By the way, if your customer has deduplication appliance, it`s recommended to disable inline deduplication.
