It is vitally important that cleanroom validation is an essential part of ensuring that cleanroom facilities are operating at the levels of cleanliness required by facility owners, their customers and where required perhaps external regulatory bodies.
However, there are multiple standards for clean room performance; in addition, facility owners can specify variations from the main classes of cleanroom to meet the needs of specific applications.
The Purpose of Clean Room Validation
Cleanroom validation or cleanroom certification can be seen as “passing a cleanroom test”; thus allowing the facility to continue to operate and be productive as designed. In most instances cleanroom validation is really about quality control, for instance:
- Preventing external contamination of samples by ensuring reliable test or experimental results.
- Ensuring a clean sterile environment for pharmaceutical or food production.
- Ensuring a low particulate environment to preventing damage to sensitive electronics.
For many facilities a cleanroom is the top of the critical asset chain; therefore, cleanroom compliance is also business critical factor; not just for profitability but also business reputation which is just as important.
Cleanroom Validation Services
APT Cleanroom Testing is a specialist clean room services company and we fully understand the importance of not just undertaking the validation testing and commissioning, but in helping facility stakeholders maintain high ongoing levels of cleanliness.
For APT Cleanroom Testing ongoing clean room validation is therefore part of a much wider process of ongoing monitoring, testing and maintenance.
Facility managers have to weigh up the costs of maintaining a higher grade of cleanroom against the costs of having to repair or replace a contaminated product; however they also have to attain the cleanroom ISO standard and regulatory requirements. It is critical that any judgement is carefully made, so that the agreed standards that have been decided sand agreed are rigidly enforced and validated, it’s worth noting that even small drops in quality may lead to an increase in contamination which may affect the bottom line and set experimental programmes/production by back by months.
