Resumen Noise labelling requires that manufacturers and retailers of certain categories of equipment must inform potential customers of the noise emitted by the equipment during a prescribed test. Labelling also serves health authorities, employers, industrial hygienists and others through a requirement that manufacturers must supply particular noise information prior to point of sale. Considerable work on international standardisation has already been carried out as well as independent work in Australia and some European countries. In order to ensure that noise labelling can function effectively, there must be a clearly defined noise descriptor linked to a clearly defined measuring method, and a methodology for the verification of labelled values. There must be continuing public education on labelling and consumer rights, and where possible, legislation should favour manufacturers of low-noise products.
