ISO 14644 – standard list



ISO 14644 is a multi-part cleanroom standard.

ISO 14644 consists of the following parts, under the general title “Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments”:
  • Part 1: Classification of air cleanliness by particle concentration
  • Part 2: Monitoring to provide evidence of cleanroom performance related to air cleanliness by particle concentration
  • Part 3: Test methods
  • Part 4: Design, construction and start-up
  • Part 5: Operations
  • Part 7: Separative devices (clean air hoods, gloveboxes, isolators and mini-environments)
  • Part 8: Classification of air cleanliness by chemical concentration (ACC)
  • Part 9: Classification of surface cleanliness by particle concentration
  • Part 10: Classification of surface cleanliness by chemical concentration
  • Part 12: Classification of air cleanliness by nanoscale particle concentration
  • Part 13: Cleaning of surfaces to achieve defined levels of cleanliness in terms of particle and chemical classifications
  • Part 14: Assessment of suitability for use of equipment by airborne particle concentration
  • Part 15: Assessment of suitability for use of equipment and materials by airborne chemical and surface chemical concentration
The reader should note that there is no 'Part 11' currently in development.

The standards use the following common codes:

APC – Airborne Particulate Cleanliness
SPC – Surface Particulate Cleanliness
AMC – Airborne (Chemical) Molecular Cleanliness
SCC – Surface Chemical Cleanliness
AVC – Airborne Viable Cleanliness
SVC – Surface Viable Cleanliness

Copies are available from national standards agencies.
