PREFACE

This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee
HT/3 on Surgical Implants, to supersede AS 2817— 1985, Orthopaedic instruments and
implants — Guide to care and handling . It is technically equivalent to, and reproduced from
ISO 8828:1988, Implants for surgery— Guidance on care and handling of orthopaedic implants.
The objective of this Standard is to ensure compatibility with AS 4187, Code of Practice for
cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing reusable medical and surgical instruments and equipment, and
maintenance of associated environments in health care facilities , as well as ensuring that proper
procedures are carried out in the care and handling of orthopaedic implants.
In some parts of this Standard, the Australian/New Zealand requirements differ from the ISO
Standard. To accommodate these differences, a marginal bar is placed alongside the ISO text, and
Appendix ZZ details the Australian/New Zealand specifications for the deviations.
This is a free 5 page sample. Access the full version at http://infostore.saiglobal.com.

In the preparation of this Standard, account was taken of AS 4187, Code of practice for cleaning,
disinfecting and sterilizing reusable medical and surgical instruments and equipment, and
maintenance of associated environments in health care facilities.
As this Standard is reproduced from an international Standard, the following applies:
(a) Its number appears on the cover and title page while the International Standard number
appears only on the cover.
(b) In the source text ‘this International Standard’ should read ‘this Australian/New Zealand
Standard’.
(c) A full point substitutes for a comma when referring to a decimal marker.
(d) References to international Standards should be replaced by the equivalent Australian
Standard, as follows:
