The National Board of Health and Welfare is together with the National Board of Environment responsible for health protection in Sweden on a national level and issues recommendations or guidelines for environmental factors.
The Board of Health and Welfare is responsible for the indoor environment and the Board of Environment is responsible for the outdoor environment.
Board guidelines for noise cover indoor noise from different activities in society, except transportation noise.
The guidelines for indoor levels are 3545 dB expressed as LAPmax for intermittent noise and 30 dBA expressed as LAq for continuous noise.
Low frequency noise is assessed in one third octave bands with specific dB equivalent pressure levels for each band.
The guidelines are intended to be used in situations where the noises come from neighbours, elevators, restaurants and other buildings.
