Introduction & History

The Irish Association of Sterile Services Managers was established in 1989 and changed its name to Irish Decontamination Institute in January 2011. Its aim is to ensure its members are up to date with developments in sterile services and to network this information to hospital sterile service departments throughout Ireland. It continues to fullfil this aim by spearheading a revolution in sterilization thought, the organizing of conferences and study days, and the dissemination of information in decontamination and sterilization. Currently, it has representation on the board of the World Forum for Hospital Sterile Supply (WFHSS) and the World Federation and was founding member of the EFHSS.

The IDI has been acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading organization associated with decontamination and sterilization. Nationally, the IDI continues to promote education in decontamination and sterilization through its involvement with the Institute of Technology, Tallaght course set up in 2000. Internationally, in 2002 the IDI was given the honor of hosting the EFHSS Conference 2002 which was attended by over 300 delegates world wide, and proved to be a great success. Many local and international speakers are now world experts in decontamination and sterilization.

With the advent of new medical device technology and increasing demands from sterile service departments, it is becoming more important that the IDI continues to grow nationally and internationally to meet the ever increasing challenges.

B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Managment
Now accepting applications to the B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Managment (Day Release Educational Program)
Dear IDI

Mr. John Behan, Head of the Department of Applied Science at the Institute of Technology Tallaght Dublin, has directed me to announce to staff within Irish hospitals that the Institute is now accepting applications for entry onto The B.Sc. Degree in Sterile Services Management.

This is a three year program of study that provides staff with the opportunity to gain a valued accredited degree without significant disruption to work rosters. The degree equips staff in key areas of contamination control and the validation of high level disinfection and sterilization technologies, providing a firm educational foundation in the microbiology water systems and other utilities, the validation of medical device decontamination and quality assurance protocols as applied to the Irish Hospital Sector. The program is ideally suited to the continual professional development requirements of hospital employers and is extremely beneficial to staff interested up-skilling and those interested in progressing into supervisory management roles.

The first year program will be delivered on site in our lecture halls and laboratories at the Institute of Technology from September 28th and subsequently, every second week there after, over two academic terms (Semesters). The first Semester commences on September 28th and ends in mid-December, and would require staff to attend on a day release basis, every Thursday. The second Semester commences in February until early May 2018, again running every second Thursday of the months involved. Some modules will also be delivered on-line.

We would be pleased if you would notify your staff of this exciting development. For further information please contact Dr. Gerard Colleran at the Institute of Technology via email at
and by telephone at With sincere thanks and best wishes to all at the IDI.

Irish Decontamination Institute - History

The Irish Association of Sterile Services Managers was established in 1989 and changed its name to Irish Decontamination Institute in January 2011. Its aim is to ensure its members are up to date with developments in sterile services and to network this information to hospital sterile service departments throughout Ireland. It continues to fullfil this aim by spearheading a revolution in sterilization thought, the organizing of conferences and study days, and the dissemination of information in decontamination and sterilization. Currently, it has representation on the board of the World Forum for Hospital Sterile Supply (WFHSS) and the World Federation and was founding member of the EFHSS.

The IDI has been acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading organization associated with decontamination and sterilization. Nationally, the IDI continues to promote education in decontamination and sterilization through its involvement with the Institute of Technology, Tallaght course set up in 2000. Internationally, in 2002 the IDI was given the honor of hosting the EFHSS Conference 2002 which was attended by over 300 delegates world wide, and proved to be a great success. Many local and international speakers are now world experts in decontamination and sterilization.
