A Review of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Code of Practice for the Radiation Sterilisation of Tissue Allografts

Jorge Morales Pedraza, Norimah Yusof and Nazly Hilmy

The code of practice adopted by the IAEA sets out the main requirements to ensure that the radiation sterilisation of tissues produces sterilised tissue allografts suitable for safe clinical use. The IAEA main contribution to the process of tissue sterilisation is the development of the guideline in using radiation for tissue. Sterilising tissue grafts using ionising radiation which is being used in many countries, offers a clear advantage in terms of safety compared with other sterilisation techniques for health care products and medical devices.
