The level of acoustic requirements for buildings and the external environment is determined by the individual countries and is quite varied depending on the economic possibilities. The evaluation parameters and methods of their designation are normalized at global or European level, within the framework of the work of the ISO/TC 43/SC2 „Building Acoustics” and CEN/TC 126 „Acoustic properties of building products and of buildings”. Implementation of the EN/ISO norms for Polish standardization is dealt with by PKN Technical Committee No. 253 „Architectural Acoustics”, which co-operates with the aforementioned Committees. The article presents the current status of work in the above standardization committees.
