||Roundup consisting of a literature survey, a review of workplaces where there are high levels of exposure to ultrasound, and considerations on the necessity to draft regulations for permissible exposure levels to ultrasound. Introduction: brief roundup of present knowledge; theoretical principles to be considered. Analysis by data processing does not appear to give conclusive results on the question of possible hearing damage due to ultrasound, so it is too soon to draft a directive on this subject. The report ends with a list of required preliminary research projects.
