Underwater Acoustics Subcommittee Formed in ISO

The ISO Technical Management Board acted in December 2011 to establish a new subcommittee TC 43/SC 3, Underwater acoustics. The Secretariat of the subcommittee will be provided by the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) acting on behalf of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The ASA currently serves as Secretariat of two other ISO committees.

The scope of the subcommittee is: Standardization in the field of underwater acoustics (including natural, biological, and anthropogenic sound), including methods of measurement and assessment of the generation, propagation and reception of underwater sound and its reflection and scattering in the underwater environment including the seabed, sea surface and biological organisms, and also including all aspects of the effects of underwater sound on the underwater environment, humans and aquatic life.
