About HTM 2031
HTM 2031 is a single document that provides guidance on contamination within steam supply whilst providing requirements for steam quality and ‘clean steam’.
Created to partner HTM 2010, the document also provides guidance on the generation of clean steam and the periodic testing of supply.
HTM 2031 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.
