Dear Sir/madam
During surgical instrument steam sterilization,. We do one ratchet close during packing. I use to do that in Europe, but American regulation say all instrument must be open during steam sterilization.
Can anyone help me any national or international regulation indicating that I can sterilize in close ratchet method. JCIA asked me to give answer in 24 hours to show any regulation

Best regards
Abukar

Dear Abukar,
actually the manufacturer of the MD has to determine the conditions of sterilization. So if it was important to sterilze the Instrument with the ratchets open, this should be written in the manufacturers instructions for reprocessing.
Best regards
