An email from Douglas Manvell, chair of technical committee (ISO/TC 43/SC 1), in response to a question from Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard regarding authorship of the committee behind the ISO soundscape standards (Acoustics — Soundscape — Part 1: Definition and conceptual framework 2014; 2018; 2019). This was a follow-up email subsequent to the response from Agnes Sayer (Sayer, personal communication, 2023) in which Grimshaw-Aagaard was directed back to Dr. Sayer.

The end result of the two email threads is that the names of the authors behind the standards remain obscured.

Acoustics — soundscape — part 1: Definition and conceptual framework. (2014). (Standard) No. DS/ISO 12913-1. Danish Standards Association.
Acoustics — soundscape — part 2: Data collection and reporting requirements. (2018). (Standard) No. DS/ISO/TS 12913-2:2018. Danish Standards Association.
Acoustics — soundscape — part 3: Data analysis. (2019). (Standard) No. DS/ISO/TS 12913-3:2019. Danish Standards Association.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your enquiry.

I hereby pass you on to Agnes, Committee Manager for ISO Acoustics. She will be better placed to help you within the rules of ISO.

All the best,

Douglas Manvell

Dear Douglas,


Are you able to give me the authors or the names of the committee members of the soundscape standards documentation?

ISO 12913-1:2014

ISO/TS 12913-2:2018


ISO/TS 12913-3:2019


They appear all to be published under your technical committee (ISO/TC 43/SC 1) but I cannot find a list of the experts comprising that committee.

The old grimshaw @ will continue to work for an unspecified amount of time for receiving mail but you should shift to the new one from end of January 2022.
