ISO 14644-6 Vocabulary available from IEST
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL | Posted on July 19th, 2007
ISO 14644-6 is an up-to-date, international dictionary of all cleanroom terms and definitions used in the ISO 14644 Cleanrooms and controlled environments and the 14698 Biocontamination series. Terms in this Standard were agreed upon on a global basis and are being using in international contracts.
Each definition is followed by the Standard designation(s) and section(s) in which it is used. An index makes finding a particular definition easier.
ISO established Technical Committee (TC) 209 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments in 1992 to address a need for global cleanroom standards other than the collection of differing national standards in place at that time. ISO 14644-6 is the last document of the original list proposed by ISO/TC 209 in 1992. Since that time, two additional documents, ISO 14644-8 Classification of airborne molecular contamination and 14644-9 Classification of surface particle cleanliness, were added to the program. The cornerstones of the series are Part 1: Classification of air cleanliness and Part 2: Specifications for testing and monitoring to prove continued compliance with ISO 14644-1.
Working Group 6 of ISO/TC 209 was responsible for the harmonization and unification of the terms, definitions, and units within ISO Standard series 14644 and 14698, as well as for the harmonization with internationally used definitions. The task was difficult because of the multilingual and multidisciplinary character of the work.
The 34-page ISO 14644-6 is available through the IEST Publications Store at http://www.iest.org or by calling (847) 255-1561.
Founded in 1953, IEST is an international technical society of engineers, scientists, and educators that serves its members and the industries they represent (simulating, testing, controlling, and teaching the environments of earth and space) through education and the development of recommended practices and standards.
IEST is an ANSI-accredited standards-developing organization; Secretariat of ISO/TC 209 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments; Administrator of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 209; Administrator of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 142 Cleaning equipment for air and other gases; and a founding member of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies.
