About

Scope

Standardization of equipment, facilities, and operational methods for cleanrooms and associated controlled environments. This includes procedural limits, operational limits and testing procedures to achieve desired attributes to minimize micro contamination. Topics of interest are non-viable particles, viable particles, surface cleanliness, room temperature and humidity profiles, airflow patterns and velocities, room vibration profiles, room light levels, room infiltration leakage, personnel procedures, personnel cleanroom clothing, equipment preparation, and any other topics related to optimizing cleanroom operations.
