Cleanroom standard to assess equipment suitability in development


A new cleanroom standard is in development:

ISO 17910 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments — Assessment of suitability of equipment and materials for cleanrooms.

The new standard will provide basic requirements and guidance on suitability for equipment and materials which are foreseen to be used in cleanrooms and clean zones.

The scope of the standard will be limited to airborne and surface cleanliness for particles and chemicals. This includes consideration of outgassing and particle and chemical emission from equipment and materials. Guidance will be provided for the mechanisms, methods, principles for determining the emissions and cleanliness levels.
