There are many British, ISO and IEC Standards relating to acoustic instruments and measurement procedures. European Harmonisation also means that some standards are being renumbered and others upgraded, giving rise to BS, BS EN, BS EN ISO, BS ISO, EN, IEC and ISO numbering systems which can be confusing.
So we have produced a simple numerical list for the relevant Acoustic Standards below. To see the current numbering details, current status and equivalent information, click a number below. Alternatively type a keyword into our Site Search Engine.
Standards Organisations publications are copyright so we cannot reproduce them in full.
Our Instruments for Hire Information is taken from the manufacturer's literature, so cannot reflect any subsequent changes in the relevant Standards. On the other hand we can keep the above Standards information up to date.
We have not included audiometers, acoustic emission, condition monitoring, ear defenders, hydrophones or underwater acoustics.
When standards are withdrawn we keep them for a while, however it is not practical to keep then 'for ever'. If you search for a standard that has been removed, a 'not found' message is displayed with options.
