Appendix A to Part 210—Summary of Noise Standards, 40 CFR Part 201
Paragraph and section Noise source Noise standard—A weighted sound level in dB Noise measure 1 Measurement location
1 Lmax=Maximum sound level; L90=Statistical sound level exceeded 90% of the time; Ladjavemax=Adjusted average maximum sound level.
2 L90 must be validated by determining that L10-L99 is less than or equal to 4dB (A).
