This part of ISO 17201 gives guidelines for noise management of shooting activity at shooting ranges. The control of the noise received outside shooting ranges at specified reception points based either on measured or calculated sound exposure levels is specified. This part of ISO 17201 can also be used in the planning of new or reconstruction of existing ranges. It is intended to comply with all relevant local rules and regulations which imply a conversion of sound exposure level to other indicators as given in ISO 17201-3.
This part of ISO 17201 applies to weapons with calibres of less than 20 mm or explosive charges of less than 50 g TNT equivalent and pressures of less than 1 kPa at the reception point.
NOTE National or other regulations, which could be more stringent, can apply.
