You will receive an email from a Battelle CCDS™ representative with the below information to complete your enrollment, but you can get started now.
To complete enrollment in the program and begin decontamination services you will need to do the following:
STEP 1: Complete Services Agreement
Please go to https://www.battelle.org/gf/ccds-agreement to read and digitally sign the Services Agreement using Adobe Sign.
For an editable version, please email your request to PPEDecontaminationContracts@battelle.org
Please be aware, requesting changes to the Services Agreement will greatly delay enrollment completion.
STEP 2: Complete the Site Locations and POC Information form to get your 3-digit site code(s)
Please complete the Site Locations and POC Information form [xlsx] and return by email to CCDSSiteCodes@battelle.org
Please note: When you click the Site Locations and POC Information form [xlsx] it will download the form directly to your computer. Please look in your Downloads folder.
Once received, we will provide you a 3-digit site code for each location you listed on your form. Site codes can take up to five business days to process. The 3-digit codes must be marked on each N95 respirator you collect and on the shipping boxes. These 3-digit site codes allow Battelle to identify your N95s.
STEP 3: Begin collecting and labeling your N95 respirators
Each N95 respirator must be handled and labeled properly for Battelle to decontaminate it. The instructions below provide details on how to collect, label, and package your respirators for shipment.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that every N95 is properly labeled and free of any visible soiling such as blood, bodily fluids, and makeup. We cannot decontaminate N95s that do not meet these requirements.
To help you determine if your N95 respirator can be decontaminated using the CCDS process, please review the N95 Guidance document.
STEP 4: Complete the Chain of Custody Form
When you prepare to send your N95s, you will need to download and fill out the Chain of Custody Form [xlsx]. Please provide one form per shipment.
Check your email
A Battelle CCDS™ representative will be sending you an email shortly. If you have questions, please follow-up with your representative. If you haven't received an email one hour after submitting the form, please check your spam folder or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCDS enrolled organizations will not be charged for decontamination or shipping services.
End-to-end logistics support is available to enrolled organizations at no cost through Cardinal Health or FedEx. The options available to you are dependent on whether you are a hospital/hospital system or another type of organization.
- Hospitals that have an anticipated volume of 200 N95s per week may use Cardinal Health or FedEx.
- Other enrolled organizations, including first responders and other healthcare providers, may use FedEx.
- Any organization may choose to use their own logistics provider at their own expense.
More information will be provided when your enrollment is complete.
