Standards & Practices
Updated IEST-RP-CC026 (Cleanroom Operations) Available

IEST-RP-CC026.3 - Cleanroom Operations provides guidance for maintaining the integrity of a cleanroom or clean zone during ancillary operations, which include: preparation of supplies and materials for entry into the cleanroom, facility modification, and installation and repair of equipment.

This recommended practice provides procedures for verifying cleanliness of the equipment, the workstation, and the area following these ancillary operations. The document does not address the effect of contamination from the equipment or facility upon the product under manufacture, nor does it specify limits of acceptance for operational conditions. It does, however, recommend standard terminology for specifying desired limits.
Updates to IEST-RP-CC026 include:

  • Updates to references and safety information
  • Expanded Section 5.4.3
  • Addition of an entire section on pass-throughs and airlocks (Section 5.4.4)
  • Addition of an entire section on equipment move-in (Section 5.5.6)
  • Updated formula format in section 6
