Can a Medical Device be processed in the SSD

Please Note:
The manufacturers Instructions for decontamination must be checked for compatibility with the SSD's decontamination processes before purchase or the equipment will not be able to be processed through the SSD.

All re-usable medical devices which require decontamination between usage, which are purchased by the Trust or external customer, must be compatible with the processes of the SSD's Decontamination Equipment and have compatible written reprocessing instructions from the manufacturer of the medical device.

If the manufacturers reprocessing instructions are not compatible with the SSD's agreed procedures and equipment parameters, which are not practicable or desirable for modification, then the equipment cannot be processed by the SSD without breaching the terms of its accreditation, which is to comply with its Declaration of Conformity.
