Annex VII, table 1 of the regulation states that there is no tolerance on the declared sound  level. When measuring this parameter, there is always a degree of uncertainty in the measured value. How should this uncertainty be handled?

Parameters without tolerance values should be reviewed during the revision of the Regulation (EU) 1060/2010 in order to evaluate whether tolerances values can be added. In other regulations, tolerances of zero, 1.5 and 2dB are used. Until a revision is published, a zero tolerance should be used.
