Testing is carried out by formally qualified acoustic consultants. We are also ACASITI associates, and have formal training in acoustics to a standard which meets and exceeds the requirements relating to tester competency in Ireland.
Check out our 5min video on tester competency:
The new Irish Building Regulations Technical Guidance Document E 2014 guidance is very clear on the requirements in relation to tester competency. The requirements clearly state that it is essential that:
- Persons are competent in the measurement of sound insulation in buildings
- Possess sufficient training, experience and knowledge appropriate to the nature of the work he or she is required to perform having particular regard to the size and the complexity of such works
The guidance also suggests that tests are carried out by a person certified by an independent third party to carry out this work, which is believed to offer a way of ensuring that such certification can be relied upon
The testers provided by www.soundinsulationtesting.ie meet the requirements clearly set out in the guidance.
