Noise is an occupational safety issue and also a neighbourhood issue. Business growth or the advance of housing construction or nature conservation may result in far-reaching problems or even put the entire site at risk. At the very least, statements regarding installation noise or noise reports are required as part of licensing procedures under building legislation or immission control legislation.
Emissions from noise-intensive processes and activities are nowadays on the agenda in many industrial enterprises. The quantification of these noise emissions is gaining in importance in view of current discussions in respect of the potential danger to health posed by noise. Depending on the objective, it can be both useful and a legal requirement to measure noise directly at its origin (noise emissions) or to seek to measure noise in the neighbourhood of an installation (noise immissions).
In respect of compliance with noise immission guide values laid down by law, it may be advantageous, especially for industrial enterprises that have a number of potential noise sources, to describe and record their own noise emissions as precisely as possible in both quantitative and qualitative terms. In such cases, it is advisable to set up the most extensive noise register possible. This makes it possible, particularly through regular revision and continuation of the noise register, to identify potential main noise emitters and to minimise them, where applicable, through technical measures. This, in turn, can result in the company improving its contribution in respect of noise in the neighbourhood.
The Betreuungsgesellschaft für Umweltfragen Dr. Poppe AG owns a certificate and notification, dated 10th of August 2020, from the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS), confirming the competence according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2018 to carry out tests in the area of noise detection, determination of noise in the neighbourhood in the specialist module immission control.
The accreditation body places high demands on the staff as well as on the quality of the detailed test instructions in the quality management manual. The technical equipment of our measuring point corresponds of course to the current state of the art.
Our customers can now increasingly benefit from our many years of experience in the field of determining and evaluating noise emissions and immissions.
