UKAS accreditation for BSRIA acoustic tests

BSRIA now offers laboratory-based acoustic testing as part of its scope of UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). Testing is carried out in BSRIA’s thermally controlled acoustic facility, a 210 m3 reverberation chamber, and covers HVAC products — including heat pumps and oil-fired boilers.

Acoustic consultant Rebecca Hogg, who manages the thermal acoustic test facility, said: ‘The extension of our scope complements our existing UKAS-accredited testing services and provides the customer with the assurance they are getting internationally recognised quality test data.

‘Precision acoustic data obtained in the laboratory facility is beneficial to customers as noise is an important factor when selecting and installing HVAC equipment.’
