document F05 : Procedure for Reprocessing Flexible Endoscopes

Flexible endoscopes are notably difficult to disinfect and prone to damage due to their design and materials. Failure to follow national standards and published recommendations for endoscope reprocessing and all manufacturers’ recommendations for the endoscope, the products, and the equipment used to perform sterilization or high-level disinfection can cause outbreaks of infection or transmission of pathogens from one patient to another.
