JAG is aware that there are a growing number of providers of outsourced services providing decontamination. These services are critical to the overall quality and safety of endoscopy provision.
At present, JAG does not accredit such services. In addition, we are unable to accept ISO/EN 13485 certification as automatically meeting the JAG standards as we have found some ISO accredited services to be operating at a level below the JAG standards.
We advise services to contact us for advice on their particular requirements if they are concerned about any negative impact on their accreditation.
