GUID 5017 is developed to reflect recent changes to the recommendations in the NICE guidance for instruments used on high-risk CJD/vCJD tissues NICE guidance IPG 666: 2020 which supersedes NICE guidance IPG 196: 2006 guidance to reduce the risk of transmission of vCJD from surgical instruments used for interventional procedures on high-risk tissues. As the IPG 196 recommendations are included in Part A of the Scottish Health Technical Memorandum (SHTM) 01-01 ‘Decontamination of medical devices in a Central Decontamination Unit’ (2018) an addendum to SHTM01-01 is required.
