my 2 cents:

 

there is not a criteria defined by laws or regulations but.. BRC tells:

 

4.5.4 Air, other gases and steam used directly in contact with, or as an ingredient in, products shall be
monitored to ensure this does not represent a contamination risk. Compressed air used directly in
contact with the product shall be filtered.
 
is it an High Care Area? Because in that case the standard tells you:
 
The segregating barrier must be capable of preventing the risk of cross-contamination from:
• pathogens which may be present in a low-risk environment or on products or ingredients that have not received a full cook
• all people moving between the high-care area and other areas except through designated changing areas
• the movement of all equipment, utensils or materials into the high-care area except through designated ports with sanitising
controls in place
• water or other liquids on the floor, washing into the high-care area
• airborne contaminants (e.g. dust particles or water droplets).
