New Environmental Standards

Listed below are international standard documents, relating to environmental aspects, which are either new or which supersede existing documents. The list does not include recently amended standards (when less than 10% of the content is changed) or when standards are confirmed to continue (without change).
This issue of the standards report includes updated documents which are utilised by many environmental engineers involved in specifying environmental requirements for equipment as well as specific tests to evaluate the ability of equipment to operate and survive such conditions.

New Standards Work Notified in August 2021

New work has been notified on the international standards listed below. It may be possible to support this new work through your relevant national standards committee. The international Technical Committee responsible for a particular document can usually be identified from the ISO/ IEC or EN website. In many cases the nations participating in the maintenance and generation of the document can also be identified. To participate within an international Technical Committee, normally nomination by your relevant national standards committee is required. It should be noted that the standards are identified by their originating standards organisation, many may also be adopted by CEN, CENELEC or ETSI as EN standards and /or by your relevant national standards organisation.

ISO 7605 Underwater acoustics. Measurement of underwater ambient sound. (will supersede none)
CEN/TS 7849 Acoustics. Determination of airborne sound power levels emitted by machinery using vibration measurement.
-1 Survey method using a fixed radiation factor. (will supersede none)
-2. Engineering method including determination of the adequate radiation factor. (will supersede none)
EN 14388 Road traffic noise reducing devices. Specifications.
EN 14389-1 Road traffic noise reducing devices. Procedures for assessing long term performance.
