Validation and qualification

Initial validation

Both the Medical Devices Directive (MDD) as well as guidelines require validated procedures in order to ensure that there are no health risks for patients, users or third parties from the reprocessed medical products.
The Miele medical products technicians, who are specially trained in appliance technology and applications, carry out the qualification and performance tests in accordance with the DGKH, DGSV and AKI guidelines. 

The relevant process parameters are recorded by means of the latest EDP programmes and measuring technologies, such as data logging. The results are correctly evaluated and documented and assessed in a report.


In the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industry the cleaning systems used in the areas of production, quality assurance and research and development must be qualified.

Miele Customer Service carries out a standard qualification process as a special service. The medical products technicians carry out the qualification (installation qualification/operation qualification). The IQ/OQ documents (standard documents) are prepared by us.

Annual service

In addition to the standard maintenance, Miele customer service can carry out a documented calibration and functionality test of the measuring systems and components in your automatic machine
and the additional appliances as a special service. 

The service / calibration IQ/OQ documents (standard documents) are prepared by us.
