It's not really necessary at all. Just format the card in the camera as soon as you insert it (obviously you want to be sure the images have been copied). I've shared SD cards between my Panasonic FZ-1000, Canon 80D, and Canon 7D II.

If you own the card, sure, fire away and do in-camera format.
However, if you HAD used that SD card on other brand camera, be aware those photos will or may not be accessible after the format.

That seems obvious. I wouldn't format unless I was sure the card was already copied, regardless of where it came from and what camera it was going into.

Obvious to whom?

Obvious to anyone who has a clue about what "format" means.  If you don't know that, you are a danger to yourself around any device (computer or tablet) that lets you do it.
