a) for a batch of equipment, the method for determining the following values:

  • - the declared mean A-weighted sound power level, LWA,m;
  • - the declared mean A-weighted emission sound pressure level, LpA,m;
  • - the statistical adder for verification, Kv;
  • - the statistical upper limit A-weighted sound power level, LWA,c;

b) how acoustical and product information is to be published electronically or in hard-copy format in technical documents or other product literature supplied to users by the manufacturer or declarer;
