The Revised Cleanroom ISO 14644ForewordISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is aworldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO memberbodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normallycarried out through ISO technical committees.Each member body interested in a subject for which a technicalcommittee has been established has the right to be representedon that committee. International organizations, governmentaland non-governmental organizations, in liaison with ISO,also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with theInternational Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters ofelectrotechnical standardization.What exactly do I get for free?We need to stress the importance that all ISO standards are theintellectual property of the ISO organization, therefore, spreadingthese across the internet free of charge would be illegal. Not tomention that the detailed specifications of these standards usuallycost several thousand euros/dollars and giving them away forfree would cause a competitive disadvantage for the companieswho buy it. This is why you’re unlikely to find the package on theinternet. However, we have created an informative guide that willlead you to the exact place on the official ISO website where youcan purchase what you need. Our goal was to provide informationon the various parts of the standard so that you will know whichparts you need and which parts to purchase.This document has been created by Kleanlabs, a European manufacturer of clean room products.1

ISO 14644 Series Cleanroom StandardsImportantly, ISO 14644 is NOT a GMP standard. Parts of the standardhave been adopted by GMP systems, such as the reference toISO classes in the 2004 FDA Guidance on Aseptic Processing andthe requirement to use the standard to classify cleanrooms inAnnex 1 of EU GMP. Not all parts of the standard are applicableto GMP environments, for example, Part 12 is intended for thenanotechnology industry. Revisions to ISO 14644 In December 2015,of ISO 14644 were revised. The more substantial changes relateto Part 1. As part of the change process, the title of the secondpart of the standard was altered to “Specifications for testing andmonitoring to prove continued compliance by ACP” (with ACPrepresenting ‘airborne particulate contamination’).This main part ofthe article considers the key changes, beginning with Part 1.LIST OFISO14644CLEANROOM STANDARDS PUBLISHEDThis document has been created by Kleanlabs, a European manufacturer of clean room products.3

Let us guide you through itin the following table.ISO 14644-1:2015ISO 14644-1:1999UCL 95%If the number of sampling locations wasbetween 1 and 10, standard deviation andUCL 95% was calculated. It is this figurethat must be within a certain range for thespecific class of clean room.Completely removed the standarddeviation and UCL 95%.
