ISO/FDIS 14644-6, Vocabulary, available


The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) has announced that the final draft International Standard (FDIS) version of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard 14644-6, Cleanrooms and controlled environments, Part 6: Vocabulary, is now available. An important resource for anyone operating a cleanroom or controlled environment, the document is an up-to-date, international dictionary of all cleanroom terms and definitions used in the ISO 14644, Cleanrooms and controlled environments, and 14698, Biocontamination, series. Each definition is followed by the standard designation and section in which it is used. It also features an index to make it easier to find a particular definition.

Working Group 6 of ISO/TC 209 undertook the task of harmonizing the terms, definitions, and units within ISO Standard series 14644 and 14698, as well as internationally used definitions.

The 34-page FDIS 14644-6 is available online at or by calling IEST at (847) 255-1561.
