INTERNATIONAL VEHICLE TYPE APPROVAL TESTS AS A GLOBAL NOISE POLICY INSTRUMENT

Differences between the vehicle regulations in different countries might lead to higher vehicle production costs and would induce lobbying actions from the industry, attempting to reduce the legal impact on the markets. It is therefore of major importance that national governments harmonise their legal regulations in such a way that the reduction of vehicle noise at the source is effectively stimulated. The development and implementation of international standards may contribute considerably to this goal, provided that these standards specify effective test methods. For the covering abstract see IRRD E104312.
