4 Validation ‘Validation is the means by which your entire process is verified, tested and documented, with the ability to be consistently reproducible. Ensure ultrasonic, washer disinfector and sterilization equipment used in practices are validated. This is to demonstrate that all instruments and equipment cleaned and sterilized by these methods are reliably and consistently cleaned using pre-determined and reproducible conditions.’ Department of Health HTM 01-05

5 Validation Use and testing of small sterilizers ‘Validation is necessary to demonstrate that the physical conditions required for sterilization (temperature, pressure and time) are achieved. Consultation with appropriately qualified engineers through a PCT or commercial arrangements will be necessary in this area. The engineer will be able to ensure that validation is achieved and that the instrumentation used for parametric release is functioning and calibrated appropriately.’ Department of Health HTM 01-05
