    Hi All,
    Hoping you could please advise where bed-pan flushers sit within AS 4187 in relation to if the HSO should have performance parameter records for each pan flush cycle or just the quarterly service ? I have sourced ISO-15883-1 and still not any clearer.

    Thank you in advance,
    Jen

    Hi Jen,

    The applicable standard for pan sanitisers is ISO15883-3, and this is read in conjunction with ISO15883-1.

    The machine is required to have visible temperature displays or indicating lights [Clause 5.1.1] and provision made for the installation of a temperature recorder if required by the purchaser [Clause 5.1.2].

    As far as performance monitoring, ISO15883-4 does not specify any routine tests to be completed on the machine, so maintenance would be in accordance with the manufacturer’s IFU.

    However, if you choose, you can specify other tests to be completed on a regular basis, for example a soil removal test or verification of achievement of disinfection temperatures.
    Kind Regards
