scope:

This International Standard specifies the physical principles of design, ergonomic requirements and the corresponding test methods for danger signals for public and work areas in the signal reception area and gives guidelines for the design of the signals. It may also be applied to other appropriate situations.

The relevance given in the definitions as to the difference between an auditory emergency signal, auditory emergency evacuation signal and an auditory warning signal should be noted. The emergency evacuation signal is covered in ISO 8201.

This International Standard does not apply to verbal danger warnings (e.g. shouts, loudspeaker announcements). ISO 9921 covers verbal danger signals.

Special regulations such as those for a public disaster and public transport are not affected by this International Standard.
