Ancillary operations include:
a) Preparation of supplies and materials
b) Modification of the facility
c) Installation and repair of equipment
Procedures are given for verifying the cleanliness of the equipment, the workstation, and the area, following these ancillary operations.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
New cleanrooms and the production and service equipment they contain are installed and commissioned by specialists under controlled and near ideal conditions. Inevitably, however, routine maintenance, modifications, and replacements will be made to both the room and equipment during their operating life. All cleanroom operations, therefore, must be conducted in accordance with correct procedures if cleanroom integrity is to be maintained at all times.
This RP provides both general and detailed methods for the continuing operation of a cleanroom to assure its integrity and is intended for use as a basis for preparing standard operating procedures (SOP) for any cleanroom.
