The Competency Framework sets out the three key components that are required to demonstrate competency at all levels within the sterility assurance lifecycle. These components consist of knowledge, understanding and experience.

The desired level of knowledge, understanding and experience will vary according to an individual’s role in sterilisation lifecycle. Evaluating competency enables individuals and organisations meet MDR and ISO regulatory requirements.

Acquiring the requisite knowledge, understanding and experience is central to achieving competency. Fortunately a broad range of subject matter experts (SMEs) have collaborated and supported SfSAP to create a series of ‘learning frameworks’ and ‘learning outcomes’ that provide an invaluable guide in support of the journey to ‘competency’.

The ‘learning frameworks and learning outcomes’ can be found in the Members Section of this website. The following document is an introduction to these documents:
