ISO/DTR 14644 -21:2023 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments

The Technical Committee (ISO/TC209) responsible for ISO 14644, the set of Standards governing cleanrooms and associated controlled environments, looked at the need for a new document to aid users in the application of airborne particle counters; especially considering the new revision to EU Annex 1 – Manufacture of Sterile Medicinal Products (2022). The Technical Report (TR) describes the application of particle counters for classification and monitoring to provide sufficient proof that the cleanroom performance both meets the required standard and is demonstrated to be maintained within ‘normal’ operating conditions.

The document, written by Mark Hallworth (one of the committee members) directly looks at those applications where particles less than 5.0 µm are important as part of an overall sampling program and not singularly those applications that are only looking at large, macro particles (>5.0 µm). It reviews the misinterpretation of clause C.4.1.2 in Annex C of ISO 14644-1, which suggests the use of 1 m tubing length for sampling macroparticles. The purpose of clause C.4.1.2 is to also describe the importance of additional functions of interpreting and understanding,

  • For classification where accuracy is required, the quality of the sample is important.
  • For monitoring where trending is important in understanding control, the quality of the data is important.
  • Direct sampling without tubing is ideal, but sample tubing can be necessary to take a sample where it is not possible to position the instrument directly, and this tubing should be as short as is feasible.
  • A sampling system (inlet probe, tubing, connectors and valves, and instrument) needs to be considered in evaluating the impact of data generated.

When we look at the spectrum of use for the particle counter it includes both classification and monitoring, and the TR set out to better describe those differences. In classification, ISO 14644 Part 1 does not provide for the classification of particle populations that are outside the table (0.1 μm to 5 μm). In monitoring, a particle counter is used to demonstrate that those particle levels associated with typical conditions do not shift from the expected range of results; these may be defined based on historical data trends. The relationship between the data gained at each phase of use is shown in Figure 1.

Understanding ISO 14644-2:2015 Cleanroom Monitoring

Following the recent publication of the revision of ISO 14644-1: 2015 and the paper on ISO 21501-4, Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) continues the series of ISO standards interpretation documents with the evaluation of the new ISO 14644-2: 2015 for Cleanroom Monitoring.

This document highlights the major changes in cleanroom monitoring, focusing on particle counters, between the previous version of ISO 14644-2 and the latest, second edition, dated December 12, 2015.

A specific approach of the best practices to be adopted for an efficient and compliant cleanroom monitoring process is discussed.

In combination with the revision of part 1. Classification of air cleanliness by particle concentration of ISO 14644-1: 2015, the technical committee of ISO TC 209 worked on updating the lines Basic guidelines for the monitoring of air cleanliness contained in ISO 14644-2.

The TC 209 community voted in favor of the revision to update and improve the standard specifically for:

  • Simplify and clarify requirements and guidance tables that specify the frequency of cleanroom particle testing and monitoring used to demonstrate continued compliance with the cleanliness classification
    Refine how these intervals can be extended, provided the automated monitoring systems show the cleanroom is under control
    Provide new guidance on aspects to consider when setting up a cleanroom monitoring system

The introduction of the new standard also lists the objectives of ISO 14644-2, when successfully applied:

  • Emphasize the needs and benefits of planned cleanroom contamination monitoring
  • Provides the method for correct particle contamination alarm and setting of warning limits, based on careful evaluation of data trends
  • Define the differences between a simple periodic cleanroom inspection and a more intensive/complex monitoring strategy
  • Improve knowledge of the facility and processes, to improve risk assessment assessment and faster reaction to any unexpected cleanroom performance
  • Concretely reduce operating costs by avoiding production losses

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Why Indoor Air Quality Matters?

It is critically important to have a flow of good indoor air quality throughout a buildingto ensure a supply of fresh air and minimize the risk of indoor air pollution from sources such as particulates, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, formaldehyde, total volatile organic carbon, bacteria and molds. Indoor air pollution can have a serious impact on employees health, both immediately and in the long-term, and statistics from the World Health Organization show that 4.3 millions people die annually because of substandard indoor air quality.  

Q-Trade can help you understand the condition of your indoor environment by providing measurement below:

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) 
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Nitric Dioxide (NO2)
  • Ambient Ozone (O3)
  • Formaldehyde (HCOH)
  • Particulate PM2.5 and PM10
  • Airborne Bacteria, Molds and Virus
  • Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Airflow Visualization
  • Construction Material Moisture Content (Cement, Wood, Glass, etc..)
