Provision of Compliant Podiatry Instruments – GUID 5007 This compliance document was developed in conjunction with the Reusable Medical Devices Decontamination Operational Group (RMD-DOG) and the College of Podiatry.

It supersedes Version 2 of GUID 5007-Provision of Compliant Podiatry Instruments published in 2014. The changes (identified in the last page) were largely reformatting in nature. This document clarifies: - the national requirements for the provision of sterilized podiatry instruments within NHSScotland and private clinics; - the national requirements for compliant reprocessing of podiatry instruments in Primary Care Local Decontamination Units (LDUs); - the national requirements for outsourcing podiatry instrument decontamination to third party providers.
