Scope

This European Standard gives guidance on general testing procedures to assess the cleanability of equipment (components and units of equipment) used in biotechnological processes. This European Standard applies primarily if the intended use of equipment includes the use of potentially hazardous microorganisms. This European Standard also applies to non-hazardous micro- organisms and/or to residual soil which can adversely affect sterilization processes or which can cause cross-contamination of products or processes.
