The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) released a Notice of Cancellation for FED-STD-209E, Airborne Particulate Cleanliness Classes in Cleanrooms and Clean Zones, on November 29, 2001.
Standard 209E cancellation is based on the recommendation by IEST
Working Group CC100 that FED-STD-209E no longer be maintained. The IEST,
assigned by the GSA as the Preparing Activity organization for
FED-STD-209E, has recommended that International Standard ISO 14644,
Cleanrooms and controlled environments-Part 1: Classification of air
cleanliness, and Part 2: Specifications for testing and monitoring to
prove continued compliance with ISO 14644-1, supersede FED-STD-209E. ISO
14644-1 and 14644-2 are two parts of a multi-part group of ISO
Standards developed by ISO Technical Committee 209 (ISO/TC 209). All
ISO/TC 209 Standards may be ordered online through IEST. Click here to enter the IEST Publications Store.
