John Logar and Steve Campbell join the SfSAP board
John Logar, strategic leader and radiation sterilisation expert who has spent most of his career involved with ASTM serving in many roles including Chair of the ASTM Board of Directors and Steve Capmbell, acting President and CEO at AAMI, joined the SfSAP board on 11 January 2022.
The SfSAP was established by iia, AAMI and ASTM (through ASTM Committee E61) to enable a broad range of organisations to collaborate in defining competency requirements for the Sterility Assurance community and that also ensures compliance with current regulations. The various SfSAP working groups have defined competency in terms of knowledge, understanding and expertise. The initiative has facilitated experts from all sterilisation modalities to develop guidance that considers sterilisation science, microbiology and packaging. Besides aiming to provide a consistent interpretation of competency the initiative aims to provide sterility assurance professionals with greater clarity over career path options and the skills that need to developed.
The appointment of John Logar and Steve Campbell strengthens the SfSAP board and allows both ASTM (through its committees) and AAMI to drive collaboration in developing training and certification, that meets the competency needs defined by the SfSAP sterility assurance community.
