Sterile Packaging selection and evaluation

The procedures for packaging selection should be in accordance with the sterilization methods available in the establishment. Before incorporating new packaging, there should be an evaluation and validation with regard to compatibility, ease of use and cost/benefit of the material at the local level.

A program for continuous supervision should exist in order to evaluate packaging options. The supervision should confirm the integrity of the external layer, the integrity of the seals, compatibility with the sterilization method, the chemical indicator gauge, and the expiration date.
