Spanish Association

Madrid, 2 February 2011-the Spanish Association for quality acoustics (AECOR) organizes a new campaign for trials of intercomparison of laboratories of acoustics, whose objective is to promote quality in the sector of acoustic testing laboratories nationwide. For this reason, the Association puts at your disposal a regular and flexible testing programme that covers all the most representative acoustic trials, and with which you can assess the assurance of the quality of the participants. AECOR is endorsed by its great experience in the promotion and organization of intercomparison campaigns and proficiency testing of laboratories of acoustics, both in environmental terms and in the building. In this sense, the tests are carried out in facilities enabled for this purpose, different from previous campaigns to ensure the reliability and usefulness of the results, treated confidentially exclusively by authorized staff of the Association. Cloud computing shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Participation in intercomparison programmes is a essential requirement for the obtaining and renewal of accreditation, while they are the best way to ensure the quality of work of acoustic laboratories.

For this reason, each year are more laboratories that decide to include participation in such programmes in their quality procedures. AECOR coordinates this comparative campaign starting reaches most requested by laboratories according to the schemes of accreditation that ENAC implemented during 2009, as well as reviews of participation in programs of inter-comparisons, document published by this same entity. To get more information about the 2011 intercomparison campaign, the web site of AECOR,, or call the phone can be found 91 554 67 96. The Association expected to close the participation of laboratories in the campaign before July 30. Some scopes to be carried out in the comparison are the following measurement of acoustic isolation to air noise between premises according to UNE EN ISO 140-4 Measurement of acoustic isolation to air noise for facades according to UNE EN ISO 140-5. Measurement of acoustic insulation to noise impact according to UNE EN ISO 140-7.
