Trophon sterilization of PICC ultrasound probe

Has anyone heard of using the Trophon sterilization process on the Ultrasound probe we use for PICC line insertions? The director of Regulatory at my hospital is saying that using this sterilation process is a Joint Commission requirement. The IFU manual from the manufacturer notes that the US probe is not to be sterilized. If this goes against the manufactures recommendations, how can Joint Commission require it? Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
