About HTM 2030

HTM 2030 is a partially archived document with CFPP 01-01 now being applicable to the Acute Healthcare Sector and HTM 01-05 now being applicable to Primary Healthcare Sector.

The document focuses on washer-disinfectors and the design, installation, operation and management of all types of thermal disinfection processes across several healthcare sectors.

HTM 2030 was first published in 1997 and was one of the definitive UK documents for decontamination within healthcare facilities until March 2013.

It is now used for information purposes and guidance that has not yet been transferred to CFPP.
