Everything you need to know about the operation and management of cleanrooms.

In 26 Chapters and over 600 pages this book provides a unique tool to help you achieve regulatory compliance. It first creates a foundation in history and established practice and then helps you understand how state of the art technology and engineering solutions can deliver the best practice and so provide reliable systems performance.

Since the first edition of this book in 2013 there have been many changes to the approach and methods for cleaning and certifying cleanrooms, most notably the revisions to Parts 1 and 2 of the ISO 14644 series of global cleanroom standards. In addition to setting out the principal changes in these revised standards, many of the other chapters in the book have been updated to reflect their requirements, bringing current practices and Good Manufacturing Practice regulations up-to-date. The book also details the leading international cleanroom requirements and regulations: U.S., FDA, EMA, and ISO. Many of the authors share best practice guidance.

This updated edition will prove an essential resource to all practitioners involved in the operation and management of cleanrooms.
