The instructions need to be clear and executable up to the level of the reprocessor/the person involved in reprocessing. It should be user friendly and shouldnt cause any harm to the person involved in reprocessing. Our experience in performing a reprocessing validation from the starting point up to the in field testing of the prepared instructions, had various challenges which are all summarized in this WP will help to provide knowledge and understanding for validating a reusable medical device that will attain the customer's satisfaction. The white paper narrates about Reprocessing of Reusable Medical Devices as per the requirements of Regulatory Bodies. The information in the WP will support to understand and generate a possible validation process for the medical devices provided by the customers.
