2016 will be a big year for Cleanrooms with the introduction of ISO 14644-1 & -2:2015.  This was published on the 15th December 2015 - finally and after 9 years of a working group, WG01 of TC209.   

Along with other national cleanroom and contamination control societies, the ICS is organising an application workshop seminar to introduce the updated standard.  We have reached out to a number of European national cleanroom societies and they are sending experts who were involved in WG01 or WG03.

The day will be broken into 2 parts - a technical seminar in the morning (09:00 - 12:00) and then a workshop in the afternoon (12:00 - 17:00) to show how to apply the new standard to existing cleanrooms. There will be a working lunch after the morning session.

A key element of the day will be the afternoon workshop where individual experts will work with companies to give specific guidance on how to apply ISO 14644-1 & -2:2015 and update their own SoPs.  We will organise a number of tables and offer FACE TO FACE sessions with the experts.

We will limit the attendance to probably no more than 30 people and we expect the attendees to come from companies providing Cleanroom Commissioning, Qualification, Testing and Verification services as well as Cleanroom Contractors and key facilities people from Life Science companies where they witness others carrying out periodic cleanroom reclassifications.

We look forward to seeing you there!
