BS EN 868-2:2009 Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices. Sterilization wrap. Requirements and test methods

BS EN 868 Part 2 provides test methods and values for materials for sterile barrier systems and/or packaging systems that are intended to maintain sterility of terminally sterilized medical devices to the point of use.

The need for a protective packaging may be determined by the manufacturer and the user.

BS EN868 only introduces performance requirements and test methods that are specific to the products covered by this part of EN 868 but does not add or modify the general requirements specified in EN ISO 11607-1.

As such, the particular requirements in BS EN 868-2 can be used to demonstrate compliance with one or more but not all of the requirements of EN ISO 11607-1.

When additional materials are used inside the sterile barrier system in order to ease the organization, drying or aseptic presentation (e.g. inner wrap, container filter, indicators, packing lists, mats, instrument organizer sets, tray liners or an additional envelope around the medical device) then other requirements, including the determination of the acceptability of these materials during validation activities, may apply.

The materials specified in this part of BS EN 868 are intended for single use, the materials specified for reuse are also covered.

If the intended purpose according to the manufacturer of the material for sterile barrier system specifies the use as sterile field, then the additional requirements of the EN 13795 series apply

The BS EN ISO 11607 series consists of two parts under the general title "Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices". Part 1 of this series specifies general requirements and test methods for materials, preformed sterile barrier systems, sterile barrier systems and packaging systems that are intended to maintain sterility of terminally sterilized medical devices to the point of use. Part 2 of this series specifies validation requirements for forming, sealing and assembly processes.

Every sterile barrier system shall fulfil the requirements of BS EN ISO 11607-1.

The BS EN 868 series can be used to demonstrate compliance with one or more of the requirements specified in BS EN ISO 11607-1.
