Sterilization of health care products -- Chemical indicators -- Guidance for selection, use and interpretation of results
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2017. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 15882:2008 provides guidance for the selection, use and interpretation of results of chemical indicators used in process definition, validation and routine monitoring and overall control of sterilization processes.
ISO 15882:2008 applies to indicators that show exposure to sterilization processes by means of physical and/or chemical change of substances, and which are used to monitor one or more of the variables required for a sterilization process. These chemical indicators are not dependent for their action on the presence or absence of a living organism.
