The Standards Council of Canada mirror committee to ISO/TC 198 formulates and delivers technical content related to the safe processing of medical devices and products so that, when used on patients, the risk of infection and adverse effects is minimized as much as possible. The committee’s work is critical in improving levels of patient care while also reducing the impact and cost of infections within health care systems in Canada and throughout the world. Additionally, by providing a Canadian position in the development of international standards, the committee is able to influence the design of equipment and products manufactured in foreign countries and imported here.
On behalf of SCC mirror committee to ISO/TC 198, the Committee Achievement Award was accepted by
