ISO 14644-5 §B6 (2004)

The final treatment and preparation of cleanroom clothing must be performed under cleanroom conditions that are compatible with the cleanroom standards where the garments will be used.

French Good Manufacturing Practices, BO n°2009/9 bis LD1, §41 to 45

41. The replacement and washing of garments must be done in accordance with a written procedure designed to minimise the contamination of clothes worn in controlled-atmosphere areas, and to minimise the introduction of contaminants in such areas.

42. The garments and their quality must be suitable for the production work being carried out in the working areas, and the classifications of the said areas. They must be worn so as to protect the product from contamination.
43. The garments required for each class are described below:
Class D: Hair and, where appropriate, beards must be covered. Normal protective clothing and shoes or overshoes must be worn. Appropriate measures must be taken to prevent any contamination coming from outside the controlled-atmosphere area.
Class C: Hair and, where appropriate, beards must be covered. An outfit must be worn, consisting of a jacket and trousers, or a coverall, tightened at the wrists and with a high collar, together with suitable shoes or overshoes. The fabric must release practically no fibres or particles.
Class A/B: A hood must entirely enclose the hair and, where appropriate, beards and moustaches. This hood must be joined to the collar of the jacket. A mask must cover the face to prevent the spray of droplets. Sterilised and non-powdered rubber or plastic gloves and sterilised or disinfected boots must be worn. The bottom of the trouser legs must be tightened against the boots, and the sleeves of the jacket must be tightened against the gloves. This protective clothing must release practically no fibres or particles, and must contain the particles released by the wearer.
44. Personal clothes must not be taken into changing rooms leading to Class B or C premises. Clean and sterile protective clothing (effectively sterilised or disinfected) must be worn by every worker in Class A/B areas, during each work shift. Gloves must be regularly disinfected during operations. Masks and gloves must be changed at least every work shift.
45. Clothing in controlled-atmosphere areas must be cleaned and handled in such a way that they do not become charged with contaminants that might be released at a subsequent occasion. These operations must be performed according to written procedures. It is preferrable to have a cleaning installation reserved for these garments alone. Some unsuitable treatments can damage the fibres and increase the risk of releasing particles.
