Conformance with EU legislation
Pulsar abides by EU Law and international standards for the verification of accuracy of its instrumentation. Currently, limits to the exposure of workers to noise is set by the European Parliament in its 2003/10/EC Directive. It stipulates that a sound level meter shall be used that is fully compliant with every part of the international standard (IEC 61672). The specification available to manufacturers such as Pulsar is a comprehensive document. It mandates that any sound level meter be fully verified for measurement accuracy, ideally by the manufacturer at least every 24 months.
All Pulsar noise measurement products undergo rigorous tests. Sound level meters are designed to meet the IEC 61672 standard and sound exposure meters IEC 61252/ANSI S1.25. Some very low costs sound level meters currently on the market are not tested properly, and it is often impossible to know if they measure correctly or not.
