Containment devices for reusable medical device sterilization Objectives and uses of AAMI standards and recommended practices It is most important that the objectives and potential uses of an Each AAMI standard or recommended practice reflects the AAMI product standard or recommended practice are clearly collective expertise of a committee of zami care professionals and understood.

As such, the consensus medical instrumentation. Essential to such advancement are 1 a recommendations embodied in a standard or recommended practice are intended to respond to clinical needs and, ultimately, to help continued increase in the safe and effective application of current technologies to patient care, and 2 the encouragement of new ensure patient safety.

A standard or recommended practice is technologies. It is AAMI’s view that standards and recommended limited, however, in the sense that it responds generally to practices can contribute significantly to the advancement of perceived risks and aaki that may not always be relevant to medical instrumentation, provided that they are drafted with specific situations.

A standard or recommended practice is an attention to these objectives and provided that arbitrary and important reference in responsible decision-making, but it should never replace responsible decision-making. A voluntary standard for a medical device recommends to the Despite periodic review and revision at least once every five manufacturer the information that should be provided with or on yearsa standard or recommended practice is necessarily a static the product, basic safety and performance criteria that should be document applied to a dynamic technology.

This review will reveal whether the document remains compare the performance characteristics of different products. Some standards emphasize the information that should be provided Particular care should be taken in applying a product standard with the device, including performance characteristics, instructions to existing devices and equipment, and in applying a recommended This is a preview edition of an AAMI guidance document and is for use, warnings and precautions, and other data considered practice to current procedures and practices.

While observed or intended to allow potential torisks evaluate the content important in ensuring the safe and effective use of the device in thepurchasers potential with existing equipment typically form the basis for clinical environment. Recommending the disclosure of making the asafety and performance criteria defined in a standard, of the document before purchasing decision. No single source of information will serve to reaching consensus on these can represent acopy considerable part AAMI document, s7t7 a particular product as “unsafe”.

A recommended Again, the rationale accompanying each AAMI standard and practice does not address device performance per se, but rather recommended practice is an excellent guide to the reasoning and procedures and practices that will help ensure that a device is used data underlying its provision.


In summary, a standard or recommended practice is qami Although a device standard is primarily directed to the useful only when it is used in conjunction with other sources of manufacturer, it may also be of value to et77 potential purchaser or information and policy guidance and in the context of professional user of the device as a frame of reference for device evaluation. Also, some recommended practices, Requests for interpretations of AAMI standards and recommended while not addressing device performance criteria, provide practices must be made in writing, to the AAMI Vice President, guidelines to industrial personnel on such subjects as sterilization Standards Policy and Programs.

An official interpretation must be processing, methods of collecting data to establish safety and approved by letter ballot of the originating committee and efficacy, human engineering, and other processing or evaluation subsequently reviewed and approved by the AAMI Standards techniques; such guidelines may be useful to health care Board.

The interpretation will become official and representation of professionals in understanding industrial practices.

This standard covers minimum labeling and performance requirements for rigid sterilization container systems and for instrument organizers.

The existence of an AAMI standard does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether they have approved the standard or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standard. AAMI standards are subject to periodic review, and users are cautioned to obtain the latest editions. This AAMI standard may be revised or withdrawn at any time.

AAMI procedures require that action be taken to reaffirm, revise, or withdraw this standard no later than 5 years from the date of publication. All AAMI standards, recommended practices, technical information reports, and other types of technical documents developed by AAMI are voluntary, and their application is solely within the discretion and professional judgment of the user of the document.

NOTE–Participation by federal agency representatives in the development of this document does not constitute endorsement by the federal government or any of its agencies. The objective of this standard is to provide minimum labeling, safety, performance, and testing requirements to help ensure a reasonable level of safety and efficacy in rigid sterilization containers and instrument organizers, which are referred to in this standard as containment devices for reusable medical device sterilization.


In comparison to the first edition, this new edition includes an informative annex on integrating medical devices with rigid sterilization container systems. Compliance with this standard is voluntary. The existence of the standard does not preclude anyone from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standard.

As technology advances and as new data are brought forward, the standard will be reviewed and, if necessary, revised. Suggestions for improving this standard are invited. Fairfax Arlington, VA Containment devices are intended to serve as packaging for instruments and other medical devices before, during, and after sterilization of the instruments and devices. Furthermore, such systems can be designed as an aid to the asmi of the surgical procedure.

Instrument organizers with lid and base serve to secure and organize instrument sets and other medical devices within a sealed reusable rigid sterilization container or within a legally marketed sterilization wrap. Reusable rigid sterilization containers require a barrier system e. Reusable rigid sterilization containers and instrument organizers vary in their design, the mechanics of operation, and the materials of construction. These recommended sr77 do outline in a broad format the information that the manufacturer should supplyThis the user demonstrate that a of reusable rigid sterilization container system and has been is atopreview edition an AAMI guidance document is qualified in commonly available hospital cycles.

However, they do not establish performance requirements for reusable rigid intended to orallow potentialdevices purchasers evaluate the content sterilization container systems other containment such as to instrument organizers. These requirements entail labeling, sterilization effectiveness e. There are two primary categories of amai devices: Containment device and packaging manufacturers bear the ultimate responsibility for validating that their products are compatible with a specified sterilization method.

Health care personnel bear the ultimate responsibility for using the containment device or packaging material in the recommended sterilization method and for performing tests to ensure that items to be packaged can be sterilized by the specific sterilizers and sterilization methods used within the health care facility. Definitions of terms, normative references, and informative annexes are also included, as well as the rationale and relevant test methods for the provisions of the standard.

This standard does not describe the use including re-use of packaging materials and systems to contain a contaminated medical device during transportation of the item to the site of reprocessing or disposal.
