Abstract
This paper analyses the problems that appear when calibration or verification of personal sound exposure meters is done following the recommendations of IEC 61252. The tests recommended in the standard to verify the characteristics of such instruments are discussed and alternative procedures are proposed to solve the problems detected. The two main problems detected are related to the duration of the process, which has a direct effect on the verification cost, and the measurement uncertainty. The use of procedures based on measurement modes that are not dependent on integration times, such as when measuring sound pressure level, is recommended whenever possible.
