ISO 14644-8, Classification of AMC
ISO 14644-8, Cleanrooms and associate controlled environments - Part 8: Classification of airborne molecular contamination
(U.S. Title: ANSI/IEST/ISO 14644-8:2006)
, is now available as a Standard.
Current scope of ISO 14644-8
International Standard is part of ISO 14644 and covers the
classification of airborne molecular contamination (AMC) in cleanrooms
and associated controlled environments, in terms of airborne
concentrations of specific chemical substances (individual, group, or
category) and provides a protocol to include test methods, analysis, and
time weighted factors within the specification for classification.
part of ISO 14644 currently considers only concentrations of AMC
between 100 and 10-12 g/m3 under cleanroom operational conditions. This
part of ISO 14644 is not relevant for application in those industries,
processes or production, where the presence of airborne molecular
substances is not considered a risk to the product or process. It is not
the intention of this part of ISO 14644 to describe the nature of
airborne molecular contaminants.
This part of ISO 14644 does not give a classification of surface molecular contamination.
