Acoustics standards activity in Canada 2004 update and invitation to participate

Tim Kelsall


This article is an update for 2004 of Acoustics Standards activities in Canada, especially those of the Canadian Standards Association. CSA currently has 10 Acoustics Standards and three more with significant acoustics content. More than twice that number of acoustics standards from other organisations, such as ANSI and ISO, have been reviewed and either endorsed or adopted as suitable for use in Canada. We intend in the coming year to replace these with a major omnibus standard which will act as a guide on the contents and use of all these standards. Canadian acousticians are invited to contact the author to become more involved with the many acoustics standards activities currently underway in Canada.
