$100.00 CAD

HSO’s Standards for the Reprocessing and Sterilization of Reusable Medical Devices address the safe and effective reprocessing and sterilization of reusable medical devices in health care facilities, with the object of achieving an adequate level of sterility assurance and minimizing the risk of injury to the operators of reprocessing and sterilization equipment. These standards were initially developed for HSO’s national program, Qmentum, in conjunction with the Canadian Standards Association. These standards have been adapted for our Qmentum International Program and reflect International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements for the sterilization of medical devices.

The Reprocessing and Sterilization standards contain the following subsections:

  • Building a High Performing Reprocessing Service
  • Complying with Good Reprocessing and Sterilization Practices
  • Selecting, Installing, and Maintaining Safe Reprocessing Equipment
  • Conducting Safe and Appropriate Reprocessing and Sterilization of Reusable Devices and Equipment
  • Having a Positive Impact on Outcomes 

    Standards that are available for purchase through this E-Store are to be considered HSO standards and may not be applicable for assessment purposes at this time. If you are part of an assessment program (such as Qmentum) with one of our partners such as Accreditation Canada, NIAZ, IQG or IQMH your assessment body will provide you with the assessment standard prior to the standard being incorporated into your program and used for surveys or assessment purposes. For information on assessment standards, or to obtain the version specific to your program, please contact your assessment provider.

    Requesting printed standards: Standards purchased online are delivered as printable PDF downloads. If you would like a copy printed and shipped to you, please email publications@healthstandards.org
