VDA Volume 19.1 – Technical Cleanliness in Automotive Industry - Qualification for “Inspector for Technical Cleanliness” - ID 971

Seminar-ID: 02-345

VDA licensed

Technical cleanliness of components and assembly groups is an important functional characteristic in the manufacture of modern vehicles. The VDA volume 19.1 “Inspection of Technical Cleanliness – Particulate Contamination of Functionally Relevant Automotive Components“ is the first comprehensive standard publication to deal with the approach and procedures to characterize cleanliness of products in the automotive quality chain. This red volume VDA 19 was first officially introduced by the VDA QMC in January 2005 and is now available in a completely revised and extended edition since 2015.

This training enables the participants to independently design cleanliness analyses according to VDA 19.1, conduct them with up-to-date equipment and document them in the required manner. Furthermore, the background to the technical necessity of cleanliness inspections and cleanly behavior is explained. The compatibility between VDA 19.1 and ISO 16232 (Part 1-10) “Road Vehicles – Cleanliness of Components of Fluid Circuits“ also enables participants to conduct cleanliness analyses according to the international standard. The participants learn about the background to the quality factor technical cleanliness in automotive construction and the ex-traction procedures for particle contaminations in components, the analytical procedures for the evaluation and quantification of contamination particles. Furthermore, the cleanliness inspection according to VDA volume 19.1 – declining test, blank values, routine inspections - is also introduced. This 2-day training can also be attended as delta training by those who already have a certificate for Inspector for Technical Cleanliness. The theoretical basics also convey comprehensive knowledge of the new and revised VDA volume 19.1 (2015). After passing the test, the participants will receive the official VDA certificate of “Inspector for Technical Cleanliness”. Otherwise there will be a certificate of attendance.
