EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AO25 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Revision of Hearing-Protector Regulations 
Abstract: In August 2009, EPA proposed amendments to the labeling regulations for hearing protection devices at 40 CFR 211 supbart B, for 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 was 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.
