ICCCS members, structure, activities, standards and accredited education
National societies in cleanroom technology and contamination control often make guidelines that fit the needs of the industries in their country. These guidelines often contain new knowledge. Sometimes these guidelines are used in the development of new standards or the revision of existing standards. In an ISO or CEN standards working group the knowledge of the participating countries is shared, combined and put as a common denominator into a new standard. Through the international standard the knowledge becomes available in the countries that adopt the new standard.In the ISO TC209 recent examples are the standards on cleanroom suitability (ISO 14644-14 and 15), energy efficiency (ISO 14644-16) and particle deposition rate (ISO 14644-17). As an example the monitoring and application of particle deposition rate, the key parameter in contamination control, will be discussed.
