941.210.1 order of the FDJP on the instruments of measurement of sound emissions of 24 September 2010 (State on December 1, 2013) the federal Department of justice and police (FDJP), view the art. 5, al. 2, 8, al. 2, 16, al. 2: 24, al. 3, and 33 of the Ordinance of 15 February 2006 on measuring instruments (Ordinance on measuring instruments), stop: art. 1 purpose this fixed order: a. the requirements for instruments for measuring noise emissions; b. the procedures for placing on the market of these measuring instruments; c. the procedures to maintain the stability of these measuring instruments measure.
Art. 2 scope of application are subject to this order the measuring instruments used for: a. measure the noise level according to the Ordinance of 19 June 1995 concerning technical requirements for road; b. vehicles measure the noise immissions by order of 15 December 1986 on protection against noise; c. measure noise emissions made by the enforcement authorities according to its order and laser 28 February 2007; d. measure noise emissions according to the order April 25, 2012 on airport charges.
RS RS RS 814.49 814.41 741.41 introduced by chapter I of the O of the FDJP from 5 nov. 2013, in effect since Dec. 1. 2013 (2013 4027 RO).
SR 748.131.3 art. 3 definition are considered noise sound level meters, filters, and the sizers measuring instruments.
Art. 4 essential requirements noise emission measuring instruments must meet the essential requirements laid down in Schedule 1 of the Ordinance on measuring instruments as well as those planned in the schedule to this order.
Art. 5 procedures for placing on the market instruments for measuring noise emissions are subject to a regular approval and initial verification by METAS according to annex 5 of the order of 15 February 2006 on the measuring instruments.
Art. 6 procedures of maintaining stability of measurement instruments for measuring noise emissions should be subject to a subsequent audit every two years by the federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) or by a laboratory audit authorized according to annex 7, ch.1, of the order of 15 February 2006 on the measuring instruments.
Before each use, the sound level meters should be calibrated with a calibrator checked according to annex 7, ch.6, the Ordinance of 15 February 2006 on measuring instruments, which at least meets the requirements of the corresponding accuracy class.
If the metrological characteristics of the instrument or the instrument model request or allow it, METAS can reduce or extend the deadline to the subsequent audit.
The name of the administrative unit has been adapted to 1 Jan. 2013 in application of art. 16 al. 3 o from 17 nov. 2004 on official publications (RS 170.512.1). This mod has been taken throughout the text.
Art. 7 transitional provisions noise emission measuring devices approved prior to the entry into force of this order can be placed on the market until the expiry of the approval.
The initial audit and subsequent verification are governed by the provisions of the law in force until the expiry of the approval.
The measuring instruments can also be subject to the audit later after the expiry of the approval if they meet the requirements of this order.
Art. 8 entry into force this order comes into force on January 1, 2011.
Annex (art. 4) specific requirements for instruments for measuring noise emissions 1. Sound level meters must satisfy the following requirements: a. allow to measure the weighted sound level LA.b. to determine directly or indirectly the average level Leq.
