Description

The AAMI/ANSI ST108 standard came out last year and is a standard that replaced AAMI TIR:34 which was a technical report. This standard covers the selection and maintenance of effective water quality suitable for processing medical devices. It provides guidelines for selecting the water quality necessary for the processing of categories of medical devices and addresses water treatment equipment, water distribution and storage, quality control procedures for monitoring water quality, strategies for bacterial control, and environmental and personnel considerations. ST108 is a complement to a healthcare facilities water management program.
Don’t miss out on this very informative webinar to learn about the standard and how you can apply it to your facility.
