ISO 14644-7, Cleanrooms and associate controlled environments - Part 7: Separative devices (clean air hoods, gloveboxes, isolators and minienvironments) was published as an International Standard in 2004. The document was submitted as an American National Standard and has been adopted as ANSI/IEST/ISO 14644-7:2004.
This part of ISO 14644 specifies the minimum requirements for the design, construction, installation, testing and approval of separative devices in those respects where they differ from cleanrooms as described in ISO 14644-4 and 14644-5. Separative devices range from open to closed systems.
The limitations are:
- Application-specific requirements are not addressed.
- User requirements are as agreed by customer and supplier.
- Specific processes to be accommodated in the separative device installation are not specified.
- Fire, safety and other regulatory matters are not considered specifically; the appropriate national and local requirements shall be respected.
- Full-suits are not within the scope of this standard.
