In Sweden there is a mandatory guideline (law) since 1999, written by the Swedish Work Environment Authorities, called the “AFS 2005:5: Cytotoxic and Other Drugs with Permanent Toxic Effects”.
This regulation on hazardous drugs applies to all healthcare, pharmacy and veterinary medicine, as well as to dental activities, research and education. The regulation addresses risk assessment, handling, protective equipment and more. It applies to different classes of drugs (antibiotics, anesthetics, antivirals, cytotoxic, some monoclonal AB etc.)
The regulation does not describe specific instructions, but the core message is that exposure to hazardous drugs shall be reduced to a minimum. Each hospital provides its own rules, based on its interpretation of the AFS. Some hospitals have made specific rules for CSTD (cytotoxic and antibiotics). .
