National Decontamination Guidance on Loan Medical Devices (Reusable): Roles & Responsibilities GUID 5002 Clear national guidance is required to define roles and responsibilities required in the decontamination process of loan medical devices.

The Sterile Service Department Consultative Group (SSDCG) requested the development of such guidance. The new guidance will reduce risks associated with loan medical devices and deliver positive health impacts. Contained within the guidance are roles and responsibilities for theatres/clinics, Central Decontamination Units (CDUs) and manufacturers/suppliers.

The guidance encompasses the entire loan cycle from the decision to order a loan medical device to the returning of the loan medical device to the supplier.
