Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1990, No.138, Note No. 1761-138-90, p.5-21. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract Decree No. 88-405 of 21 April 1988 (CIS 89-724 and 89-725) and the Government Order of 25 April 1988 make noise labelling compulsory, as from 1 January 1990, for a great variety of industrial machinery. This data sheet introduces the new regulations (background and scope) and discusses the various aspects of noise labelling (why? for whom? by whom? how?). Reference is also made to standards and to other directives and regulations requiring noise labelling. Annexes: extracts of EEC Directive 86/188/EEC (CIS 87-45) and of the French regulation enforcing the EEC directive; list of French and German testing codes for noise produced by certain industrial equipment to be applied from 1 Jan. 1989.
