Cleanrooms consultation on draft event

23rd March 2011, Holborn Bars, London


ISO cleanrooms standards are changing!  Attend this free of charge event to:

  • Learn about the changes
  • Make your comments

The major standards ISO 14644-1 Classification of air cleanliness and ISO 14644-2 Specifications for testing and monitoring to prove continued compliance with ISO 14644-1 have been published as draft international standards (DIS).  The revision of these standards will set new benchmarks to comply with and have a considerable impact on the operation of cleanrooms.

The draft standards are now open for public comment, and BSI is pleased to offer you the opportunity to attend a full day event which will examine these standards closely, offer you an insight to their application, and give you the opportunity to put your questions on the revisions to cleanrooms experts.

It is an ideal opportunity to see how these standards will impact on the operation of your cleanroom, to voice your opinions on the standards and to feed into the final draft. Join in the discussion and debate, and then network with your peers and members of the committee who are involved in the development of ISO 14644-1 and ISO 14644-2 at a closing drinks reception.

Key benefits of attending:

  • Examine the revisions to ISO 14644-1 and ISO 14644-2 and hear direct from the Chairman of BSI LBI/30, and the convenor of the Working Group that wrote these draft standards, Gordon Farquharson
  • Get an update on the latest cleanrooms legislation and see what changes you will need to make
  • Put your questions on the standards to the committee members responsible for drafting the standards
  • Give you feedback on the draft standards and help shape the standards before they publish.
