Abstract A review is given of existing criteria that could be applied to rating the noise environment in dwellings, to rating noise isolation between dwellings, and to rating noise isolation from outside to inside a dwelling. It is concluded that the central problem is to select appropriate criteria for rating the interior noise environment. Once this is done, criteria for noise isolation can be derived directly and these in turn can be used to derive performance requirements for building elements, such as partitions and exterior walls.
