The Federal Sterilizing Research Advisory Councils of Australia (FSRACA) promotes high standards of practice in the provision of sterilizing and disinfection services.

The National Council works closely with each State Branch and the common goal of maintaining industry standards, professional development and much more.

Throughout the year each of our State Branches run workshops and seminars to keep sterilizing technology practitioners fully informed on the latest developments in technology.


Membership is State Branch based. If you are interested in becoming a new member of FSRACA or need to renew your existing membership please visit your nearest branch website:
