This Botswana Standard specifies procedures for environmental noise impact investigations and assessments.
NOTE 1 For information on national legislation regarding environmental impact investigations, see the introduction.
NOTE 2 The responsibility rests with the relevant authority (see 3.19) or applicant (see NOTE 3(a), in cooperation with the environmental assessment practitioner (where relevant), and the interested or affected parties under the direction of the officer, agent or consultant conducting the noise impact investigation, to stipulate the scope of the investigation (for example, the noise sources to be investigated), the format and content of the report and the detail regarding the input data (for example, measuring results, calculations, assumptions and estimates).
NOTE 3 This standard does not cover requirements regarding officers, agents or consultants who are to be appointed for environmental noise impact investigations or for evaluation of reports submitted. The responsibility of the applicant and the relevant authority in this regard is described in Annex A.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
