ISO 2017-3:2015 establishes requirements to ensure appropriate exchange of information regarding the application of isolation of buildings from vibrations and shocks generated by man-made sources.
ISO 2017-3:2015 is applicable only during the design and construction of new buildings in areas affected by important vibrations which can be generated by single or multiple sources (railways, traffic, industrial activity, etc.) The isolation of these buildings serves to ensure the integrity of the structure and equipment inside (including sensitive equipment) and human comfort.
ISO 2017-3:2015 specifies the information to be exchanged between building owner, customer, and vibration isolation supplier. It gives appropriate responses to questions highlighted by the producer and user (why, what, when, and how to isolate mechanical systems).
ISO 2017-3:2015 does not include earthquake and wind-generated forces.
