We do many wet washes weekly with a foam it unit. The equipment gets a rinse with hot water, chlorinated degreaser with mixture of water the liquid test between 1350ppm-1500ppm, gets applied to the equipment and sits for five minutes. After five minutes the equipment is rinsed with hot water and tested with ATP each and every time and when need for All eight allergens. My question is do we also need to apply a sanitizer after we do the chlorinated wet wash. ATP has to be 20 or under and the allergen test have to pass or all equipment is rewashed with the chlorinated degreaser.

ALWAYS SANITIZE. Your current method is just asking for trouble. ATP swabs are great and all, but any major manufacturer  I've ever worked for (and I've worked also for a large cleaning chemical company) has had a wash-rinse-test (which is where you are stopping)-sanitize  cycle. There is a reason that there are 3 comp sinks. It is a critical step. If you don't want to rinse again, use a no-rinse sanitizer (many good ones out there).
