This document specifies a reference threshold of hearing for the calibration of audiometric equipment used under the following conditions.
a) The sound field in the absence of the listener consists of either a free progressive plane wave (free field) or a diffuse sound field, as specified in ISO 8253‑2. In the case of a free field, the source of sound is directly in front of the listener (frontal incidence).
b) The sound signals are pure (sinusoidal) tones in the case of free-field conditions and one-third-octave bands of (white or pink) noise in the case of diffuse-field conditions.
c) The sound pressure level is measured in the absence of the listener at the position where the centre of the listener's head would be.
d) Listening is binaural.
NOTE 1 Correction values for the threshold of hearing under free-field listening conditions and selected angles of sound incidence (45° and 90°) deviating from frontal incidence are given in ISO 8253-2 for information.
NOTE 2 Other conditions are given in Reference [1].
The data are given in numerical form for the preferred frequencies in the one-third-octave series from 20 Hz to 16 000 Hz inclusive in accordance with ISO 266 and, in addition, for some intermediate audiometric frequencies up to 18 000 Hz.
The threshold data differ from the audiometric zero specified in ISO 389‑1, ISO 389‑2, ISO 389‑5 and ISO 389‑8, since the latter refer to monaural listening through earphones with sound pressure levels referred to specified couplers and ear simulators. Direct comparison between the data in the parts of ISO 389 mentioned above and in this document is therefore not appropriate.

ISO 3740:2019 gives guidance for the use of a set of twelve basic International Standards (see Tables 1, 2 and 3) describing various methods for determining sound power levels from all types of machinery, equipment and products. It provides guidance on the selection of one or more of these standards, appropriate to any particular type of sound source, measurement environment and desired accuracy. The guidance given applies to airborne sound. It is for use in the preparation of noise test codes (see ISO 12001) and also in noise emission testing where no specific noise test code exists. Such standardized noise test codes can recommend the application of particular basic International Standard(s) and give detailed requirements on mounting and operating conditions for a particular family to which the machine under test belongs, in accordance with general principles given in the basic standards.
ISO 3740:2019 is not intended to replace any of the details of, or add any additional requirements to, the individual test methods in the basic International Standards referenced.
NOTE 1 Two quantities which complement each other can be used to describe the noise emission of machinery, equipment and products. One is the emission sound pressure level at a specified position and the other is the sound power level. The International Standards which describe the basic methods for determining emission sound pressure levels at work stations and at other specified positions are ISO 11200 to ISO 11205 (References [20] to [25]).
NOTE 2 The sound energy level mentioned in ISO 3741 to ISO 3747 is not addressed in this document as it is not mentioned in any legal requirement. Its application is limited to very special cases of a single burst of sound energy or transient sound defined in ISO 12001.

This document specifies methods of predicting the sound exposure level of shooting sound for a single shot at a given reception point. Guidelines are given to calculate other acoustic indices from the sound exposure level. The prediction is based on the angular source energy distribution of the muzzle blast as defined in ISO 17201-1 or calculated using values from ISO 17201-2.
This document applies to weapons with calibres of less than 20 mm or explosive charges of less than 50 g TNT equivalent, at distances where peak pressures, including the contribution from projectile sound, are less than 1 kPa (154 dB).
NOTE National or other regulations, which could be more stringent, can apply.

This document specifies a method to determine the acoustic source energy of the muzzle blast for calibres of less than 20 mm or explosive charges of less than 50 g TNT equivalent. It is applicable at distances where peak pressures less than 1 kPa (equivalent to a peak sound pressure level of 154 dB) are observed. The source energy, directivity of the source and their spectral structure determined by this procedure can be used as input data to sound propagation programmes, enabling the prediction of shooting noise in the neighbourhood of shooting ranges. Additionally, the data can be used to compare sound emission from different types of guns or different types of ammunition used with the same gun.
This document is applicable to guns used in civil shooting ranges but it can also be applied to military guns. It is not applicable to the assessment of hearing damage or sound levels in the non-linear region.
Suppressors and silencers are not taken into consideration in this document.

This document specifies procedures for measuring and reporting the noise emission of information technology and telecommunications equipment.
NOTE 1 This document is considered part of a noise test code (see 3.1.2) for this type of equipment and is based on basic noise emission standards (see 3.1.1) ISO 3741, ISO 3744, ISO 3745, ISO 9295 and ISO 11201.
The basic emission quantity is the A-weighted sound power level, which can be used for comparing equipment of the same type but from different manufacturers, or for comparing different equipment.
Three basic noise emission standards for determination of the sound power levels are specified in this document in order to avoid undue restriction on existing facilities and experience. ISO 3741 specifies comparison measurements in a reverberation test room; ISO 3744 and ISO 3745 specify measurements in an essentially free field over a reflecting plane. Any of these three basic noise emission standards can be selected and used exclusively in accordance with this document when determining sound power levels of a machine.
The A-weighted sound power level is supplemented by the A-weighted emission sound pressure level determined at the operator position or the bystander positions, based on basic noise emission standard ISO 11201. This sound pressure level is not a level of noise immission at a work station (see 3.2.12), but it can assist in identifying any potential problems that could cause annoyance, activity interference or hearing damage to operators and bystanders.
Methods for determination of whether the noise emission includes prominent discrete tones are specified in Annex D.
This document is suitable for type tests and provides methods for manufacturers and testing laboratories to obtain comparable results.
The methods specified in this document allow the determination of noise emission levels for a functional unit (see 3.1.4) tested individually.
The procedures apply to equipment which emits broad-band noise, narrow-band noise and noise which contains discrete-frequency components, or impulsive noise.
The sound power and emission sound pressure levels obtained can serve noise emission declaration and comparison purposes (see ISO 9296[3]).
NOTE 2 The sound power levels and emission sound pressure levels obtained are not intended to be considered as installation noise immission levels; however, they can be used for installation planning (see ECMA TR/27[11]).
If sound power levels obtained are determined for a number of functional units of the same production series, they can be used to determine a statistical value for that production series (see ISO 9296[3]).

This document specifies a subjective method for measuring sound attenuation of hearing protectors at the threshold of hearing. The method is a laboratory method designed to yield reproducible values under controlled measurement conditions. The values reflect the attenuating characteristics of the hearing protector only to the extent that users wear the device in the same manner as did the test subjects.
For a more representative indication of field performance the methods of ISO/TS 4869‑5 can be used.
This test method yields data which are collected at low sound pressure levels (close to the threshold of hearing) but which are also representative of the attenuation values of hearing protectors at higher sound pressure levels. An exception occurs in the case of amplitude-sensitive hearing protectors for sound pressure levels above the point at which their level-dependent characteristics become effective. At those sound pressure levels the method specified in this document is inapplicable, as it will usually underestimate sound attenuation for these devices.
NOTE Due to masking from physiological noise in the occluded ear tests, sound attenuations below 500 Hz can be overestimated by a few decibels.

This document specifies three methods (the octave-band, HML and SNR methods) of estimating the A-weighted sound pressure levels effective when hearing protectors are worn. The methods are applicable to either the sound pressure level or the equivalent continuous sound pressure level of the noise. Although primarily intended for steady noise exposures, the methods are also applicable to noises containing impulsive components. It is possible that these methods could not be suitable for use with peak sound pressure level measurements.
The octave-band, H, M, L or SNR values are suitable for establishing sound attenuation criteria for selecting or comparing hearing protectors, and/or setting minimum acceptable sound attenuation requirements.

ISO 389-1:2017 specifies a standard reference zero for the scale of hearing threshold level applicable to pure-tone air conduction audiometers, to promote agreement and uniformity in the expression of hearing threshold level measurements throughout the world.
ISO 389-1:2017 states the information in a form suitable for direct application to the calibration of audiometers, that is, in terms of the reference equivalent threshold sound pressure levels of generic supra-aural earphones specified in 4.2, measured on an ear simulator complying with IEC 60318‑1 and in terms of model-specific data given in two additional tables for the IEC 60318‑3 acoustic coupler and the IEC 60318‑1 ear simulator, respectively.
The data are based on an assessment of the information available from the various standardizing laboratories responsible for audiometric standards and from scientific publications.
Some notes on the application and derivation of the reference levels are given in Annexes A and B.

ISO 389-1:2016 specifies the following data applicable to the calibration of bone vibrators for pure-tone bone-conduction audiometry:
a) reference equivalent threshold vibratory force levels (RETVFL), corresponding to the threshold of hearing of young otologically normal persons by bone-conduction audiometry;
b) essential characteristics of the bone vibrator and the method of coupling to the test subject, and to the mechanical coupler;
c) essential characteristics of the masking noise and the baseline masking noise level applied to the ear not under test.
Guidance on the practical application of this part of ISO 389 in the calibration of audiometers is given in Annex B.
RETVFL is the vibratory force level transmitted to a mechanical coupler of specified characteristics by a vibrator when applied to the mechanical coupler under stated conditions of test and when energized at the voltage level corresponding to the normal threshold of hearing for location on the mastoid prominence.
NOTE 1 Values for the differences in reference equivalent threshold vibratory force levels between location on the forehead and mastoid are included for information in Annex C.

ISO 6926:2016 specifies the acoustical performance requirements for reference sound sources:
- temporal steadiness (stability) of the sound power output;
- spectral characteristics;
- directivity.
Temporal steadiness is defined in terms of the standard deviation of repeatability (see 5.2). The spectral characteristics can be verified in either a hemi-anechoic room or a reverberation test room from measurements of the frequency band sound power levels in accordance with this International Standard (see 5.4). The performance requirements on directivity index can only be verified in a hemi-anechoic room (see 5.5.)
ISO 6926:2016 also specifies procedures for providing level calibration data and uncertainty on a sound source intended for use as a reference sound source in terms of its sound power level under reference meteorological conditions as defined in Clause 4 in octave and in one-third-octave bands, and with frequency weighting A.
ISO 6926:2016 is titled as a calibration standard even though the method is conducted in a testing laboratory and the level calibration results are not directly traceable to national standards of measure in a strict metrological sense. Testing laboratories performing this method are not expected to meet all requirements normally associated with a calibration laboratory.
NOTE ISO/IEC 17025[15] specifies different requirements for the competence of testing laboratories and calibration laboratories respectively. Laboratories testing reference sound sources in accordance with this International Standard would typically comply with the requirements for testing laboratories but not necessarily with those for calibration laboratories.
ISO 6926:2016 specifies methods to calibrate reference sound sources not only in a free field over a reflecting plane but also in reverberation test rooms at different distances from the boundary surfaces. For the position of the reference sound source on one reflecting plane, the two different test environments mentioned above are considered equivalent for frequency bands above or equal to 200 Hz. At 160 Hz and below, some systematic differences can occur (see 11.2). For frequencies below 100 Hz, an alternative calibration method using sound intensity is given.
The sound source can either be placed directly on the floor or mounted on a stand to be used at a certain elevation above the floor. According to this International Standard, stand-mounted sources are calibrated in reverberation test rooms. Floor-mounted sources are either calibrated in hemi-anechoic or in reverberation test rooms. For floor-mounted sources in hemi-anechoic rooms, this International Standard is valid only for sources whose maximum vertical dimension is less than 0,5 m and whose maximum horizontal dimension is less than 0,8 m. According to this International Standard, only floor-mounted reference sound sources can be used when carrying out measurements on a measurement surface. For reference sound sources to be used or calibrated under reverberant conditions, no such restrictions on maximum dimensions apply.

facilitating the writing of noise test codes;
providing physical explanations of this noise emission quantity compared to other noise quantities (see 4.1 to 4.3);
comparing the different measurement methods offered by the group;
facilitating the choice of the most appropriate method(s) in typical practical situations.
ISO 11200:2014 applies to airborne sound only. It is for use in noise testing, in general, and in the preparation of noise test codes, in particular.
A standardized noise test code is intended to select standards from the ISO 11201, ISO 11202, ISO 11203, ISO 11204 and ISO 11205 group, which are the most appropriate to the machinery family it covers, and which give detailed requirements on mounting and operating conditions for the particular family, as well as the location of the work station(s) and other specified positions as prescribed in these International Standards.

It specifies noise measurement methods that can be used, and specifies the operating and mounting conditions required for the test.
Noise emission characteristics include the sound power level and emission sound pressure level. The determination of these quantities is necessary: to compare the noise emitted by machines; to enable manufacturers to declare the noise emitted; for noise control purposes.
The use of ISO 1680:2013 as a noise test code ensures the reproducibility of the determination of the noise emission characteristics within specified limits determined by the grade of accuracy of the basic noise measurement method used. Noise measurement methods allowed by ISO 1680:2013 are precision methods (grade 1), engineering methods (grade 2) and survey methods (grade 3). Methods of engineering grade (grade 2) are preferred.
ISO 1680:2013 is applicable to rotating electrical machines of any length, width or height.

In order to ensure minimum requirements of precision and comparability between different test procedures including speech recognition tests in different languages, ISO 8253-3:2012 specifies requirements for the composition, validation and evaluation of speech test materials, and the realization of speech recognition tests. ISO 8253-3:2012 does not specify the contents of the speech material because of the variety of languages.
Furthermore, ISO 8253-3:2012 also specifies the determination of reference values and fulfilment requirements for the realization and manner of presentation.
ISO 8253-3:2012 specifies procedures and requirements for speech audiometry with the recorded test material being presented by air conduction through an earphone, or from a loudspeaker for sound field audiometry. Methods for using noise either for masking the non-test ear or as a competing sound are described.
Some test subjects, for example children, can require amended test procedures not specified in ISO 8253-3:2012.

ISO 3747:2010 specifies a method for determining the sound power level or sound energy level of a noise source by comparing measured sound pressure levels emitted by a noise source (machinery or equipment) mounted in situ in a reverberant environment, with those from a calibrated reference sound source. The sound power level (or, in the case of noise bursts or transient noise emission, the sound energy level) produced by the noise source, in frequency bands of width one octave, is calculated using those measurements. The sound power level or sound energy level with frequency A-weighting applied is calculated using the octave-band levels.
The method specified in ISO 3747:2010 is suitable for all types of noise (steady, non-steady, fluctuating, isolated bursts of sound energy, etc.) defined in ISO 12001. The method is primarily applicable to sources which emit broad-band noise. It can, however, also be used for sources which emit narrow-band noise or discrete tones, although there is a possiblity that the measurement reproducibility is then degraded.
The noise source under test can be a device, machine, component or sub-assembly, especially one which is non-movable.
The test environment that is applicable for measurements made in accordance with ISO 3747:2010 is a room where the sound pressure level at the microphone positions depends mainly on reflections from the room surfaces. In measurements of ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 2 (engineering grade), background noise in the test environment is low compared to that of the noise source or reference sound source.
Information is given on the uncertainty of the sound power levels and sound energy levels determined in accordance with ISO 3747:2010, for measurements made in octave bands and for A-weighted frequency calculations performed on them. The reproducibility conforms with that of either ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 2 (engineering grade) or ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 3 (survey grade), depending on the extent to which the requirements concerning the test environment are met.

ISO 3741:2010 specifies methods for determining the sound power level or sound energy level of a noise source from sound pressure levels measured in a reverberation test room. The sound power level (or, in the case of noise bursts or transient noise emission, the sound energy level) produced by the noise source, in frequency bands of width one-third-octave, is calculated using those measurements, including corrections to allow for any differences between the meteorological conditions at the time and place of the test and those corresponding to a reference characteristic impedance. Measurement and calculation procedures are given for both a direct method and a comparison method of determining the sound power level and the sound energy level.
In general, the frequency range of interest includes the one-third-octave bands with mid-band frequencies from 100 Hz to 10 000 Hz. Guidelines for the application of the specified methods over an extended frequency range in respect to lower frequencies are given in an annex. ISO 3741:2010 is not applicable to frequency ranges above the 10 000 Hz one-third-octave band.
The methods specified in ISO 3741:2010 are suitable for all types of noise (steady, non-steady, fluctuating, isolated bursts of sound energy, etc.) defined in ISO 12001.
The noise source under test can be a device, machine, component or sub-assembly. ISO 3741:2010 is applicable to noise sources with a volume not greater than 2 % of the volume of the reverberation test room. For a source with a volume greater than 2 % of the volume of the test room, it is possible that the achievement of results as defined in ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 1 (precision grade) is not feasible.
The test rooms that are applicable for measurements made in accordance with ISO 3741:2010 are reverberation test rooms meeting specified requirements.
Information is given on the uncertainty of the sound power levels and sound energy levels determined in accordance with ISO 3741:2010, for measurements made in limited bands of frequency and for A-weighted frequency calculations from them. The uncertainty conforms to ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 1 (precision grade).

The methods specified in ISO 3744:2010 are suitable for all types of noise (steady, non-steady, fluctuating, isolated bursts of sound energy, etc.) defined in ISO 12001.
ISO 3744:2010 is applicable to all types and sizes of noise source (e.g. stationary or slowly moving plant, installation, machine, component or sub-assembly), provided the conditions for the measurements can be met.
The test environments that are applicable for measurements made in accordance with ISO 3744:2010 can be located indoors or outdoors, with one or more sound-reflecting planes present on or near which the noise source under test is mounted. The ideal environment is a completely open space with no bounding or reflecting surfaces other than the reflecting plane(s) (such as that provided by a qualified hemi-anechoic chamber), but procedures are given for applying corrections (within limits that are specified) in the case of environments that are less than ideal.
Information is given on the uncertainty of the sound power levels and sound energy levels determined in accordance with ISO 3744:2010, for measurements made in limited bands of frequency and with frequency A-weighting applied. The uncertainty conforms to ISO 12001:1996, accuracy grade 2 (engineering grade).

ISO 11202:2010 specifies a method for determining the emission sound pressure levels of machinery or equipment, at a work station and at other specified positions nearby, in situ. A work station is occupied by an operator and may be located in open space, in the room where the source under test operates, in a cab fixed to the source under test, or in an enclosure remote from the source under test. One or more specified positions may be located in the vicinity of a work station, or in the vicinity of an attended or unattended machine. Such positions are sometimes referred to as bystander positions.
Emission sound pressure levels are determined as A-weighted levels. Additionally, levels in frequency bands and C-weighted peak emission sound pressure levels can be determined in accordance with ISO 11202:2010, if required.
Methods are given for determining a local environmental correction (subject to a specified limiting maximum value) to be applied to the measured sound pressure levels in order to eliminate the influence of reflecting surfaces other than the plane on which the source under test is placed. This correction is based on the equivalent sound absorption area of the test room and on radiation characteristics (source location or directivity at the work station).
With the method specified in ISO 11202:2010, results of accuracy grade 2 (engineering grade) or accuracy grade 3 (survey grade) are obtained. Corrections are applied for background noise and, as described above, for the acoustic environment. Instructions are given for the mounting and operation of the source under test and for the choice of microphone positions for the work station and for other specified positions. One purpose of the measurements is to permit comparison of the performance of different units of a given family of machines, under defined environmental conditions and standardized mounting and operating conditions.
The method specified in ISO 11202:2010 is suitable for all types of noise (steady, non-steady, fluctuating, isolated bursts of sound energy, etc.) defined in ISO 12001.
The method specified in ISO 11202:2010 is applicable to all types and sizes of noise sources.
The type of test environment influences the accuracy of the determination of emission sound pressure levels. For ISO 11202:2010, any room meeting prescribed requirements is applicable. These requirements on the room are less strict compared to those of ISO 11201[15], in particular regarding the acoustical quality of the environment.
ISO 11202:2010 is applicable to work stations and other specified positions where emission sound pressure levels are to be measured.
Appropriate positions where measurements may be made include the following: a) work station located in the vicinity of the source under test; this is the case for many industrial machines and domestic appliances; b) work station within a cab which is an integral part of the source under test; this is the case for many industrial trucks and earth-moving machines; c) work station within a partial or total enclosure (or behind a screen) supplied by the manufacturer as an integral part of the source under test; d) work station partially or totally enclosed by the source under test; this situation may be encountered with some large industrial machines; e) bystander positions occupied by individuals not responsible for the operation of the source under test, but who may be in its immediate vicinity, either occasionally or continuou

ISO 5136 specifies a method for testing ducted fans and other air-moving devices to determine the sound power radiated into an anechoically terminated duct on the inlet and/or outlet side of the equipment.
The method is applicable to fans which emit steady, broad-band, narrow-band and discrete-frequency sound and to air temperatures between - 50 °C and + 70 °C. The test duct diameter range is from 0,15 m to 2 m. Test methods for small (d < 0,15 m) and large (d > 2 m) test ducts are described in the informative annexes H and I, respectively.
The maximum mean flow velocity at the microphone head for which the method is suitable, depends on the type of microphone shield used, and is as follows:
foam ball 15 m/s; nose cone 20 m/s; sampling tube 40 m/s.
Above these values the suppression of turbulent pressure fluctuations by the microphone shield may be insufficient.
The method described in ISO 5136 is applicable to a sound source in which a fan is connected to ducts on at least one side. It is also applicable to other fan/attenuator combinations or equipment incorporating fans which can be considered as "black boxes".
Examples of fans and other equipment covered by ISO 5136 are
ducted centrifugal fans, ducted axial flow fans, ducted mixed-flow fans, ducted air-handling units, ducted dust-collection units, ducted air-conditioning units, and ducted furnaces.
ISO 5136 is also applicable to other aerodynamic sources such as boxes, dampers and throttle devices provided that a quiet air flow delivered by an auxiliary fan is available, and the signal-to-noise ratio of sound pressures to turbulent pressure fluctuations in the test duct is at least 6 dB.
It is not applicable to non-ducted fans or equipment.

ISO 7235:2003 specifies methods for determining
the insertion loss, in frequency bands, of ducted silencers with and without airflow,
the sound power level, in frequency bands, of the flow noise (or regenerated sound) generated by ducted silencers,
the total pressure loss of silencers with airflow, and
the transmission loss, in frequency bands, of air-terminal units.
The measurement procedures are intended for laboratory measurements at ambient temperature. Measurements on silencers in situ are specified in ISO 11820.
It is to be noted that the results determined in a laboratory according to ISO 7235:2003 will not necessarily be the same as those obtained in situ (installation), as different sound and flow fields will yield different results. For example, the pressure loss will be lower under laboratory conditions than in situ, but will be comparable between different laboratories.
ISO 7235:2003 is applicable to all types of silencer including silencers for ventilating and air-conditioning systems, air intake and exhaust of flue gases, and similar applications. Other passive air-handling devices, such as bends, air-terminal units or T-connectors, can also be tested using this International Standard.
It is not applicable to reactive silencers used for motor vehicles.

ISO 9614-3:2002 specifies a method for measuring the component of sound intensity normal to a measurement surface which is chosen so as to enclose the sound source(s) of which the sound power level is to be determined.
Surface integration of the intensity component normal to the measurement surface is approximated by subdividing the measurement surface into contiguous partial surfaces, and scanning the intensity probe over each partial surface along a continuous path which covers the extent of the partial surface. The measurement instrument determines the averaged normal intensity component and averaged squared sound pressure over the duration of each scan. The scanning operation can be performed either manually or by means of a mechanical system.
The octave band or band-limited weighted sound power level is calculated from the measured one-third-octave- band values. The method is applicable to any source for which a physically stationary measurement surface can be defined, and on which the sound generated by the source under test and by other significant extraneous sources are stationary in time. The source is defined by the choice of measurement surface. The method is applicable in specific test environments fulfilling all relevant requirements of ISO 9614-3.
ISO 9614-3 specifies certain ancillary procedures, described in annex C, to be followed in conjunction with the sound power determination. The results are used to indicate the quality of the determination, and hence the grade of accuracy. If the quality of the determination does not meet the requirements of ISO 9614-3, the test procedure shall be modified in the manner indicated.
ISO 9614-3 is not applicable to any frequency band in which the sound power of the source is found to be negative on measurement.
It is applicable to sources situated in any environment which is neither so variable over time as to reduce the accuracy of the measurement of sound intensity to an unacceptable degree, nor subjects the intensity measurement probe to gas flows of unacceptable speed or unsteadiness.
In some cases it will be found that the test conditions are too adverse to allow the requirements of ISO 9614-3 to be met. For example, extraneous noise levels can exceed the dynamic capability of the measuring instrument or can vary to an excessive degree during the test. In such cases the method given in ISO 9614-3 is not suitable for the determination of the sound power level of the source.

ISO 9612:2009 specifies an engineering method for measuring workers' exposure to noise in a working environment and calculating the noise exposure level. ISO 9612:2009 deals with A-weighted levels but is applicable also to C-weighted levels. Three different strategies for measurement are specified. The method is useful where a determination of noise exposure to engineering grade is required, e.g. for detailed noise exposure studies or epidemiological studies of hearing damage or other adverse effects.
The measuring process requires observation and analysis of the noise exposure conditions so that the quality of the measurements can be controlled. ISO 9612:2009 provides methods for estimating the uncertainty of the results.
ISO 9612:2009 is not intended for assessment of masking of oral communication or assessment of infrasound, ultrasound and non-auditory effects of noise. It does not apply to the measurement of the noise exposure of the ear when hearing protectors are worn.
Results of the measurements performed in accordance with ISO 9612:2009 can provide useful information when defining priorities for noise control measures.

ISO 10846-5:2008 specifies a driving point method for determining the low-frequency transfer stiffness for translations of resilient supports, under a specified preload. The method concerns the laboratory measurement of vibrations and forces on the input side with the output side blocked, and is called the “driving point method”.
The stiffness resulting from measuring the input displacement (velocity, acceleration) and input force is the dynamic driving point stiffness. Only at low frequencies, where the driving point stiffness and the transfer stiffness are equal, can this method be used for determination of the dynamic transfer stiffness.
The method is applicable to test elements with parallel flanges.

It is applicable to resilient elements that are used to reduce
the transmission of audiofrequency vibrations (structure-borne sound, 20 Hz to 20 kHz) to a structure which may, for example, radiate fluid-borne sound (airborne, waterborne, or other), and
the transmission of low-frequency vibrations (typically 1 Hz to 80 Hz), which may, for example, act upon human subjects or cause damage to structures of any size when the vibration is too severe.

Resilient elements, which are the subject of ISO 10846-2:2008, are those which are used to reduce
the transmission of vibration in the lower part of the audible frequency range (typically 20 Hz to 500 Hz) to a structure which may, for example, radiate unwanted fluid-borne sound (airborne, waterborne or others), and
the transmission of low-frequency vibrations (typically 1 Hz to 80 Hz), which may, for example, act upon human subjects or cause damage to structures of any size when vibration is too severe.
