The Committee for Hygiene, Construction and Technology has compiled a new recommendation on environmental conditions and their control in Reprocessing Units for Medical Devices. The aim of this publication is to present information on the state of the art and experience with respect to hospital hygiene, microbiology and audits. This information lays the groundwork for the formulation of requirements for the environmental conditions and their control and for bringing the current publication into line with the state of the art.
