Recommendations by the Committee for Hygiene, Construction and Technology

Requirements for Construction or Reconstruction of a Reprocessing Unit for Medical Devices (RUMED)

Part 11: Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in a RUMED

Part 11 of the publication series “Requirements for Construction or Reconstruction of a Reprocessing Unit for Medical Devices (RUMED)” focuses on the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in a RUMED. 

Cooperation is vital between all participants for planning and acceptance, as described in the recommendations previously published by the Committee for Hygiene, Construction and Technology. That calls for close collaboration between the project managers, RUMED management, infection control team, engineering department, architect, planning engineer for technical building services, medical technology department, fire protection, occupational health and safety, and the competent authorities.

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning requirements applicable in the cleaning/disinfection area, equipment-based barrier composed of washer-disinfectors (WDs)/sterilizers differ from those in the packing and sterilization area as well as in the side rooms within the RUMED.
