This document specifies all the information necessary to carry out efficiently and under standardised conditions the determination, declaration and verification of the airborne noise emission of surface treatment machines as stated in Annex A. Surface treatment machines include but are not limited to - machines for cleaning and pre-treatment of industrial item surfaces, - machinery for coating and colour mixing, - coating plants and . dryers, ovens and evaporating equipment. This document describes the determination of emission sound pressure levels at work stations or other specified positions as well as the determination of sound power levels for surface treatment machines as stated in Annex A. This can be small single units (e.g. handheld atomising spraying equipment) and also complex machines with large dimensions (e.g. machines for cleaning and pre-treatment of industrial item surfaces, spray booths, dryers), which could also be linked.
