We believe that it's perfectly resonable for you to define the cleanliness that you require. We recommend that you leave it at that and not define the process or materials that your supplier use in meeting that cleanliness level. Start with a dirty

Many shops require levels for typical component packages on FR-4 or a like substrate to be 2, 9, 15, 1 and 10 mg/in2 for fluoride, chloride, bromide, nitrate, and sulfate respectively. These levels can change for Medical or Automotive.

Thanks Phil. However, my objective is to identify stencils that are not 100% clean prior to sending to inventory. I want to catch it before the solder paste has a chance to dry and harden in the apertures. Kerry

You would be better served to check your print quality as you run. Any problems caused by dirty stencils ( plugged aps etc ) would show up right away as a defect. Search the forum for more on this subject. I seem to recall the same subject coming up
