Space product assurance - Dry Heat Bioburden Reduction for Flight Hardware; English version EN 16602-70-57:2015

Title (German)

Raumfahrtproduktsicherung - Reduktion der Gesamtkeimzahl bei trockener Hitze für Flughardware; Englische Fassung EN 16602-70-57:2015


This standard defines procedures for the reduction of microbiological contamination of flight hardware using heat. The procedures described in this standard cover: reduction of microbiological contamination on exposed surfaces, mated surfaces and encapsulated in materials; reduction of microbiological contamination in dry, ambient and uncontrolled humidity environments. This standard also sets requirements for the conditioning of the flight hardware, bioburden reduction cycle development, and equipment to be used for applying a bioburden reduction procedure. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00. This document (EN 16603-70-57:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/CLC/TC 5 "Space", the secretariat of which is held by DIN (Germany). This document has been prepared specifically to deal with space systems and therefore takes precedence over any European Standard, as it has the same scope but a wider scope (for example aerospace). The responsible German standardization committee is Working Committee NA 131-06-02 AA "Interoperabilität von Informations-, Kommunikations- und Navigationssystemen" ("Interoperability of information, communication and navigation systems") at DIN Standards Committee Aerospace (NL).
