The Technical Committee TC 29: Electroacoustics was established in 1953. The original very broad scope of
the Committee covered nearly all aspects of electroacoustical instrumentation, transducers and calibration
methods relating to airborne sound, ultrasonics and vibration. The problems referring to vibrations were very
early transferred to ISO, except for the activities related to audiology.
The present scope of TC 29 is as follows:
To prepare International Standards related to instrumentation and methods of measurements in the
field of electroacoustics.
Excluded from the scope are:
a) standards for sound and video recording as dealt with by TC 100;
b) standards for equipment in the field of audio and audiovisual engineering as dealt with by TC 100;
c) standards and terminology for ultrasonic techniques dealt with by TC 87.
Note - Close co-operation shall, however, be maintained with TC 87 in the fields of common interest.
Description of work
The standards produced by TC 29 are used by governmental authorities as well as by industry. It is very important
that experts preparing the draft standards represent research and development as well as test laboratories,
industrial production, quality control and the users. The activity of TC 29 currently covers the following areas, each
including performance requirements, calibration and test methods:
Noise/sound measuring instrumentation: Sound level meters, personal sound exposure meters,
equipment for aircraft noise certification, filters, instruments for the measurement of sound intensity and
Ear simulators, h
