Title Electroacoustics - Audiometric equipment - Part 3: Test signals of short duration
Project Number 20588
Abstract/Scope This part of IEC 60645 specifies a means of describing the physical characteristics of audiometric reference and test signals of short duration and methods for their measurement. [
]The object of this standard is to ensure that audiometric stimuli of short duration are specified and measured in the same way and that the calibration of equipment using such signals is carried out using defined methods.[
]This standard does not describe the method of use of short duration test signals.[
]This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1994. This edition constitutes a technical revision. Specific changes in this edition concern new figures of reference signals and changes in definitions.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
