1)      Applicable Laws on Sound Insulation

TS 2381 (05.04.1976): Evaluation of Sound Insulation in Houses Regulation on Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise / published in the Official Newspaper no. 25862 dated July 1, 2005 Health and Safety Regulation 'Noise Regulation an published in the Official newspaper No. 25325 dated 23 December 2003 Vibration Regulation  published in the Official newspaper No. 25325 dated 23 December 2003Regulation on Health and Safety Conditions in the Use of Work Equipment.

Regulation on the Use of Personal Protective Equipment in the Workplace an published in the Official newspaper dated 11 February 2004 and numbered 25370  Regulation on Procedures and Principles of Occupational Health and Safety Trainings of Employees published in the Official newspaper dated 07 April 2004 and numbered 25426

2) Ongoing Legislation and Standards

Environment and Forest Ministry "Integrated Harmonization Strategy for the Environment for the Republic of Turkey Project" within the scope of the directives on noise in EU Acquis in the process of harmonization of Turkish Environmental Legislation, published in 1986 Noise Control Regulations were repealed Regulation "Evaluation and Control of Environmental noise has been published. Although this regulation is an important instrument in combating noise, other tools that the regulation requires such as noise maps have not been prepared yet.

Noise maps are in progress.

3) Compliance with EU

A part of the standards related to sound insulation measurement procedures established in the EU have been translated by TSE and published as Turkish standards. Therefore, it can be said that the measurement standards are partly in line with the EU. TSE is working on other non-harmonized measurement standards.

4) Standard Lack

There is no European standard for sound insulation materials, which describes the characteristic information of sound insulation materials, including testing, marking and labeling procedures. Following the establishment of European standards for sound insulation materials, these standards will be harmonized by TSE. On the other hand, the standard series EN 12354 - 1,2,3,4,5 and 6, which have been completed and published in the EU and which provide approaches for the calculation of the acoustic performance of the building elements, must be harmonized immediately. In our country, there is no common calculation procedure used by designers to calculate acoustic and acoustic performance of building materials. The lack of a common calculation procedure is a major shortcoming, as acoustic and sound insulation details need to be solved at the design stage.
