NEN-ISO 1999┬áspecifies a method for calculating the expected noise-induced permanent threshold shift in the hearing threshold levels of adult populations due to various levels and durations of noise exposure; it provides the basis for calculating hearing disability according to various formulae when the hearing threshold levels at commonly measured audiometric frequencies, or combinations of such frequencies, exceed a certain value. The measure of exposure to noise for a population at risk is the noise exposure level normalized to a nominal 8 h working day, LEX,8h, for a given number of years of exposure. This International Standard applies to noise at frequencies less than approximately 10 kHz which is steady, intermittent, fluctuating, irregular. Use of this International Standard for sound pressures exceeding 200 Pa (140 dB relative to 20 μPa) is recognized as extrapolation. Formulae are presented to calculate the hearing loss, including statistical distribution, at a range of audiometric frequencies due to exposure to noise as a function of level of noise exposure and duration of exposure (in years). The formulae do not distinguish between male and female populations. To calculate hearing threshold levels and the risk of acquiring hearing loss due to noise exposure, it is necessary to make use of a comparable population. This International Standard contains a definition of a highly screened otologically normal population (in accordance with ISO 7029) and three examples of unscreened populations of three typical industrialized societies. The users of this International Standard may choose a comparable population according to their particular requirements. This International Standard is based on statistical data and therefore cannot be applied to the prediction or assessment of the hearing loss of individual persons except in terms of statistical probabilities.
