Decontamination systems are devices intended to decontaminate certain medical devices (such as compatible respirators) so that they can be reused by healthcare personnel. FDA has issued EUAs authorizing the emergency use of some decontamination systems to decontaminate certain respirators, recognizing that availability of PPE is an integral part of routine patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This table below includes authorization information for the use of decontamination systems to decontaminate certain PPE devices during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Templates for these EUA submissions are available to help facilitate the preparation, submission, and authorization of an EUA.
