To provide citizens with a high level of environmental protection, it is necessary to limit noise emissions to the greatest possible extent. Therefore, before placing a product on the Union market, importers and distributors must ensure that the drone bears the CE marking. When required, the UA class identification label and the indication of the sound power level.
To affix the sound label, it is necessary to comply with a series of requirements imposed in Part 13, 14 and 15 of the DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2019/945. These sections establish the airborne noise measurement methods to determine the sound power levels of the different classes of UA 1 and 2. In addition, the basic noise emission standards and the test code to measure the sound pressure level produced by the device are detailed and established.
