(In Delayed Effective Date Format)
Notice: This background statement is not part of the balloted item. It is provided solely to assist the recipient in
reaching an informed decision based on the rationale of the activity that preceded the creation of this Document.
Notice: Recipients of this Document are invited to submit, with their comments, notification of any relevant patented technology or copyrighted items of which they are aware and to provide supporting documentation. In this context, “patented technology” is defined as technology for which a patent has issued or has been applied for. In the latter case, only publicly available information on the contents of the patent application is to be provided.
Background Statement This task force was chartered to clarify and review industrial hygiene criteria in 23.5. The section has added explanatory materials for valid air sampling and measurement methods and accredited laboratories. Additionally, conformance criteria statements have been clarified.
This ballot consists of three line items:
Line Item 1: Chemical Exposure Criteria Line Item 2: OEL Clarification Line Item 3: Change to applied OEL percentage for normal, maintenance, and fault conditions Please forward a courtesy copy of any comments or negatives against the ballot with your contact information to John Visty at firstname.lastname@example.org. As this is a technical ballot, all votes of reject must be accompanied by negatives and sent to SEMI staff or they will be considered abstention votes.

1.1 This Safety Guideline is intended as a set of performance-based environmental, health, and safety (EHS) considerations for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
2 Scope NOTICE: Revisions to § 2 will be effective upon the July 2012 publication as shown in Delayed Revisions Sections 6 and 7. The global Environmental Health & Safety Technical Committee has voted that the revisions are OPTIONAL before the Effective Date.

2.3 Precedence of Sectional Requirements — In the case of conflict between provisions in different sections of this guideline, the section or subsection specifically addressing the technical issue takes precedence over the more general section or subsection.
NOTICE: SEMI Standards and Safety Guidelines do not purport to address all safety issues associated with their use. It is the responsibility of the users of the Documents to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory or other limitations prior to use.
3.1 This guideline is intended for use by supplier and user as a reference for EHS considerations. It is not intended to be used to verify compliance with local regulatory requirements.
3.2 It is not the philosophy of this guideline to provide all of the detailed EHS design criteria that may be applied to semiconductor manufacturing equipment. This guideline provides industry-specific criteria, and refers to some of the many international codes, regulations, standards, and specifications that should be considered when designing semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
3.3 Existing models and subsystems should continue to meet the provisions of SEMI S2-93A. Models with redesigns that significantly affect the EHS aspects of the equipment should conform to the latest version of SEMI S2.
This guideline is not intended to be applied retroactively.
3.4 In many cases, references to standards have been incorporated into this guideline. These references do not imply applicability of the entire standards, but only of the sections referenced.
