Here is the publication which was prepared by LR professional and officially by Lloyd's Register marine department; the team of authors combined the Code on Noise Levels on Board Ships in order to provide the owners of the vessels with the required technical guidance to follow during the noise surveys. The Code itself, apart from the general information, contains the requirements to the measuring equipment and process of measurement, applicable noise exposure limits, insulation issues, hearing protection and warning information, reporting format, inclusion of noise issues in SMS, methods of attenuating noise, and simplified procedure for determining the exposure to noise. The Guidance, in turn, provides readers with a quick review of the new for new noise legislation, assessment condition, noise assessment procedures, maximum levels of noise, insulation and reporting, all supplemented with a number of tables and figures. In fact, the number of publication addressing the noise level measurements, associated procedures and regulation, is not that huge so we would recommend this booklet to anyone involved in this process as well as to the owners, crew members, class and PSC inspectors.
