In order to safely reuse a medical device (MD), it is essential to clean, disinfect or sterilize the device prior to its use. It is the manufacturers responsibility to provide guidelines for these processes which will ensure that the patient’s safety is guaranteed during each reuse of the device.

There are specific requirements and dedicated standards for each process of cleaning, disinfection and sterilization. During registration the manufacturers of MDs must provide the health authorities with precise instructions on how to clean, disinfect and sterilize the product before reuse.
In order to ensure the patient’s safety, one has to be aware and to stay up to date regarding the regulatory requirements.
