By definition, aspetic means free of pathogenic microorganisms. Whereas Sterile means absence of all the microorganisms. While the difference is clear, both terms are sometimes used interchangably. For example, FDA has a guideline on processing the sterile drugs in the Aspetic environment. But this guideline does not draw a clear distinction between the two categories.
