At the end of October 2007 Accredited Standards Committee S3, Bioacoustics, approved the first‐ever formation of a new subcommittee in the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) Standards Program. The new group is designated S3/SC 1 Animal Bioacoustics and its scope of work is:
Standards, specifications, methods of measurement and test, instrumentation and terminology in the field of psychological and physiological acoustics, including aspects of general acoustics, which pertain to biological safety, tolerance and comfort of non‐human animals, including both risk to individual animals and to the long‐term viability of populations. Animals to be covered may potentially include commercially‐grown food animals; animals harvested for food in the wild; pets; laboratory animals; exotic species in zoos, oceanaria or aquariums; or free‐ranging wild animals.
