Get updated on the new standards on energy management

17-May-2010

The BS EN 16001 Energy management systems standard came into force in April. The new standard is designed to provide a framework that will enable more effective energy management, and is particularly relevant for companies operating in an energy intensive industry or facing GHG emission legislation. But how does it affect cleanrooms?

The BS EN 16001 Energy management systems standard came into force in April. The new standard is designed to provide a framework that will enable more effective energy management, and is particularly relevant for companies operating in an energy intensive industry or facing GHG emission legislation. But how does it affect cleanrooms?

BSI\'s 3rd Annual Cleanrooms Conference in London on 9 June will place a particular focus on effective energy management in cleanrooms, including an introduction to BS EN 16001 Energy management systems and case studies from organisations that have already optimised their energy performance.

Held at the CBI Conference Centre and chaired by Tony Harrison, vice chairman, UK Pharmaceutical Healthcare Sciences Society and UK technical expert on Non-viable Contamination, Biocontamination and BSI LBI/030, the conference will also describe changes to the ISO 14644 and ISO 14698 series of cleanroom and biocontamination standards and how they may affect cleanroom operations. In particular it will examine the impact these changes will have on requirements for complying with GMP.

Among the key speakers, Tim Eaton, sterile manufacturing specialist at AstraZeneca, will look at reducing emissions and improving energy management in cleanrooms; Brendon McManus, md of Clean Air Technologies, will provide a case study on the design of more energy efficient cleanrooms, while Tim Triggs, director, DOP Solutions, will consider whether BS EN 16001 is appropriate for cleanrooms.

Dick Gibbons, contamination expert and working group convenor for BS EN ISO 14644 surface chemical contamination, will cover developments in particulate and chemical contamination control in the microelectronics and medical device sector. Karen Rossington, marketing and development manager, Shield Medicare, will talk about validation of cleanroom disinfectants and Richard Swift, MS&T microbiologist, Lilly UK, will also offer a case study on validating cleanrooms for pharmaceuticals manufacture. The day’s events will include discussion sessions and offer delegates the opportunity to benchmark processes and results against key industry operators with a track record of driving quality and efficiency.
