I am a logistician by training with lots of field experience in cold chain but not a biomedical engineer or technician. We are working on developing a simple mobile app for health care facilities (not for district stores and higher level) for managning cold chain equipment.
I am looking for guidance, ideally an authoritative document, on cold chain equipment assessment/survey tools for assessing and monitoring the equipment status of CCE throughout its life cycle (installation, commissioning, testing, functional monitoring, servicing, repairing, decomissioning and disposing) which are more detailed than IGAT or SMT.
In addition, what essential facility and product data (type, model, make, serial number, manufacturer) is essential for a facility registry of cold chain equipment?
Are standard recommendations for routine servicing and preventive maintenance for CCE available?
I would appreciate any guidance or advice,
