3. Contaminated instruments must be sterilized in the following manner:

a. The contaminated instruments must be thoroughly cleansed with an antiseptic solution, according to the instructions for the antiseptic solution, and hot water.

b. The contaminated instruments and all other instruments, must be packaged properly and loaded correctly into the autoclave.

c. The contaminated instruments must be sterilized by autoclave.

4. All sterilized instruments must be stored and handled in a manner that maintains sterility.

5. Autoclaves must be cleaned regularly and serviced at least once a year.

6. Each body-piercing salon utilizing autoclave sterilization techniques must post the sterilization procedures and ensure that personnel responsible for performing the sterilization procedures are adequately trained.
