The revised standard AS/NZS 4187:2014 Reprocessing of reusable medical devices in health service organizations will help ensure reusable medical devices are used safely.

The standard will ensure that health service organisations correctly clean, disinfect, and sterilize reusable medical devices prior to and between patient uses without risk of transmission of infectious agents. There are significant differences in the structure, content, and terminology of this edition of the standard from that of the previous 2003 edition.
