SCOPE AND PURPOSE
This standard contains guidelines for the preparation or procedures (standards, test codes, recommended practices, etc.) for determination of noise emission from sources. These guidelines are intended to provide the framework for the thought process to be followed in developing measurement procedures. They do not contain a catalog of existing procedures nor do they contain a collection of specific requirements. Rather, they outline the general questions and issues which need to be considered during the development of a measurement procedure.
The following sections of this standard provide a structure for items to be considered during the development of a procedure for the determination of noise emission from sources. Each such procedure is, of course, unique and thus not all of the items may be applicable.
