EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AO25 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Revision of Hearing-Protector Regulations 
Abstract: EPA plans to undertake a revision of its regulation at 40 CFR part 211, subpart B, regarding the labeling of products that are sold wholly or in part on the basis of their ability to reduce the level of sound entering a person's ears, typically referred to as "Hearing Protectors." This action is being taken under the authority of section 8 of the Noise Control Act of 1972, which authorizes EPA to revise the current compliance test methodologies as necessary, and incorporate new test methods and rating schemes to address hearing protector technologies that have evolved since initial promulgation of the regulation in 1979.
