Validation & Accreditation

Steriliser Validation

Compulsory every 12 months according to AS/NZS 4815:2006 and AS/NZS 4187:2015

The Validation process, also called Performance Qualification, includes calibration and chamber profiling as well as further testing to ensure that your sterilizer is capable of sterilizing the most challenging load that you process in your practice. Validation is required when installing new steriliser / autoclave and at least 12 monthly intervals. Validation may also be required at 6 monthly intervals depending on the age or cycle count of the steriliser / autoclave.

Validation also requires the completion of Biological Indicator Testing. This is easy to do by practice staff and MDS can provide instructions, support and in house biological testing. Alternatively, MDS will complete biological indicator testing during validation to comply with AS/NZS 4187:2015.

Our Validation Steriliser Service includes:

  • A heat distribution test - chamber profiling 
  • Cold spot identification
  • Customer load penetration testing
  • Penetration Time/Time at Temperature Test Report
  • Validation Certificate and report to comply with accreditation
  • Maintenance as required
  • Detailed instructions and support for the completion of Biological Indicator Testing.

We are equipped to validate any brand of steriliser and have the qualifications to comply with your audit requirements.

Electrical Safety Test and Tag

Biomedical equipment testing exceeds the standard office equipment electrical safety testing and must be carried out by a qualified biomedical technician with the appropriate test equipment that ensures every piece of equipment is electrically safe to use for both the patient and the user. 

AS/NZS 3760 – 2010 In-Service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment carried out by a general Electrician states in 1.1.7 This Standard does not apply to medical electrical equipment nor any equipment connected to medical electrical equipment in a medical electrical system as defined in AS/NZS 3551.

NOTE – Test and inspection requirements for this equipment are contained in AS/NZS 3551.

Our test and tag service incorporates functional testing and electrical safety using the highest quality fluke test equipment specifically for use on biomedical equipment. This will ensure that the electrical safety testing and compliance documentation will meet all regulatory audits and allow for practice accreditation.

We perform this electrical safety testing to comply with AS/NZS:3551 and will provide the relevant compliance reports, including asset logs and test equipment certification to ensure your practice passes safety accreditation.
