    CSA Preface This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-Z17665-2, Sterilization of health care products ? Moist heat ? Part 2: Guidance on the application of ISO 17665-1, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Technical Specification 17665-2 (first edition, 2009-01-15). This Standard was reviewed for Canadian adoption by the CSA Technical Committee on Sterilization, under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Health Care Technology, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee. This Standard has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada. Scope This Technical Specification provides general guidance on the development, validation and routine control of moist heat sterilization processes and is intended to explain the requirements set forth in ISO 17665-1. The guidance given in this Technical Specification is provided to promote good practice related to moist heat sterilization processes and to assist those developing and validating a moist heat sterilization process according to ISO 17665-1. NOTE 1 The structure of the main body of this ISO Technical Specification (Clauses 1 to 12) corresponds to the structure of ISO 17665-1, so that the guidance given under a particular clause or subclause of this part of ISO 17665 applies to the requirements given in the corresponding clause or subclause of ISO 17665-1. For example, guidance for subclause 5.2 of ISO 17665-1:2006 is given in 5.2. This guidance is provided in addition to the guidance given in ISO 17665-1:2006, Annex A. See also Annexe E. NOTE 2 Special considerations specific to sterilization processes performed in health care facilities are given in Annex D.
