The regulatory landscape for cleanrooms can be complex. On top of managing the requirements of the ISO 14644 suite of standards, you may also need to comply with cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines and those of industry regulatory bodies. But the experts at Angstrom Technology are committed to supporting you through successful audits. All cleanroom projects with a requirement for cGMP compliance have oversight from our dedicated regulatory governance team. 

With over 40 year’s combined experience in cGMP and pharmaceutical industries, this level of in-house expertise sets us apart from other cleanroom companies. In this blog — the first in our Global Cleanroom Expertise series — we explain how we can support your regulatory compliance.
