Abstract The European series of standards EN ISO 11200 to 11204 helps to determine sound emission pressure levels at the workplace. According to the regulations (including Machinery Directive 89/392/EEC, see inter alia CIS 94-782) this level must be taken into consideration, together with the sound power level, in complying with safety requirements concerning work equipment noise. This paper proposes a guide to help users to come to grips with these standards and make proper use of them. It includes: general presentation and definitions; influence of the measurement environment; precision and reproducibility; the special case of standard EN ISO 11203; implementation. Two sets of tables are appended, presenting the "applicability" of the standards in the series in a large number of workplace situations, and the compatibility of the EN ISO 11200 standards with the EN ISO standards for determining sound power level.
