The American Electrology Association has adopted these Infection Prevention Standards for the Practice of Electrolysis (Standards) as part of our commitment to the protection of both our practitioners and the public. Some Standards are based on well-documented scientific studies and others are based on practical observation. It is our goal to revise these Standards as often as necessary to keep them compliant with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Standard Precautions, as recommended by the CDC, combine the major features of Universal (Blood and Body Fluid) Precautions and Body Substance Isolation. These precautions are designed to reduce the risk of transmission of blood-borne pathogens and pathogens from moist body substances.
