This full-day course also includes: (1) a brief overview of the entire ISO 14644 series to help you become familiar with the breadth of this essential International Standards Series and (2) critical insights into the 2015 revision to these standards, including changes in the revised Standards, how they impact your cleanroom operations, and the rationale of the documents.
