ANSI S3.6-1996 Specification for Audiometers represents our most current and best resource for information regarding audiometers. It also contains reference threshold levels for all commonly used transducers in one standard. ANSI S3.6-1996 incorporates existing ANSI, ISO, and IEC standards in an effort to obtain worldwide uniformity. ANSI S3.6-1996 will be reviewed in 5 years and, if necessary, will be revised to include new information. All audiologists are strongly encouraged to read ANSI S3.6-1996 because there are many more aspects of the standard than those discussed in this article. Information for ordering a copy of ANSI S3.6-1996 can be obtained from the Standards Secretariat, Acoustical Society of America, 120 Wall Street, 32nd Floor, New York, NY 10005-3993 (Tel: 212-248-0373; Fax: 212-248-0146).
