There are many different clean room testing certifications, all of which may occur in any of three different stages:
As Built: A cleanroom certified “As-Built Facility” defines a cleanroom fully constructed and operational, with all services connected and functioning, but has no production equipment or operating personnel within the facility. This certification is most common because any failures can be immediately addressed, and corrected by the cleanroom designers and construction Companies.
At Rest: A cleanroom certified “At-Rest Facility” defines a cleanroom fully constructed and operational, with production equipment installed and operating (or operable), but has no personnel within the facility. This certification demonstrates continued compliance from the “As Built” certification. Cleanrooms that were constructed but sat idle, or cleanrooms that were modified, would require “At Rest” certification.
Operational: A cleanroom certified “Operational Facility” defines a cleanroom in normal manufacturing operations, including equipment and personnel. This certification may occur after a partial—or full—complement of equipment is installed within the cleanroom. The intent is to demonstrate continued cleanroom compliance and maintain cleanliness standards. Cleanroom management personnel will determine if, and when, the cleanroom should meet “Operational” certifications.
Cleanroom certification guarantees that the facility has met the requirements for a statistically-valid maximum concentration of specified-size airborne particles.
