Abstract This Order implements in France the provisions of Directive 84/533/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the permissible sound power level of compressors (see CIS 95-1195), as modified by Directive 85/406/EEC (CIS 98-1100). It defines the conditions for the granting of EEC conformity and type approvals for compressors with regards to maximum noise level emissions, and it describes the sound measurement techniques that must be used for measuring such emissions.
