Canadian Standards Association is pleased to announce that the draft new
edition of Z317.13 Infection control during construction, renovation, and
maintenance of health care facilitiesis now at the Public Review
stage. This standard was first published in 2003, and since then it has
become an essential tool for defining the preventive measures needed to protect
patients, staff, and visitors from disease transmission and other health
problems that can occur during the construction, renovation, or maintenance of
health care facilities.
The draft can be accessed on the CSA Public Review site at the following link: http://publicreview.csa.ca/Home/Details/1997. New users of the site will need do a very basic registration (i.e. providing a valid email address) in order to access and comment on the draft. CSA is asking that all comments be sent by June 20thso they can be received and processed in time for the upcoming subcommittee review on June 24th.
anyone involved in infection control, or who is building, renovating, or
maintaining health care facilities, this is a great opportunity to take part in
the ongoing improvement of this very influential standard. We look
forward to your input!
