Mission Statement

The WFHSS dedicates itself to the promotion of the worldwide harmonization of sterilization departments and of decontamination practices especially by providing:

  • a meeting place for national and regional non-profit sterilization societies, thus stimulating cooperation and the exchange of information and best practices;
  • information via its website to all our stakeholders and interested parties.

In this way we make a contribution not only to ensure that the quality of reprocessing is of the highest possible level across the globe but also to make the basic right of every patient to be treated with a medical device of a good quality come true. Integrity and objectivity, openness and transparency, cooperation and support are the core values in our organization.
