Although the Cleaning Standards for Victorian Health Facilities (2011) has been rescinded, it is imperative that Victorian facilities have their own internal Environmental Cleaning & Auditing policy, procedures and programs, that demonstrate compliance to the requirements of the NHMRC Safety and Quality in Healthcare Action 3.1.3 (Routine Management of Physical Environment) and the NSQHS Standard 3 Preventing and Controlling Infections, 2021, Actions 3.13 and 3.14 for a Clean, Safe and Hygienic environment.

If you need any help with your Infection Prevention and Control policies or procedures, including cleaning and auditing standards, please contact IPA on
