Product Noise Rating (PNR): Financial and Marketing Support Workshop

The Product Noise Rating (PNR) offers a single number noise rating for consumer products to enable purchasers to make informed decisions. The technical aspects of PNR have been developed. The next step is for PNR to be utilized by manufacturers and retail / online stores. The purpose of this workshop is to develop ideas for finding financial and marketing support for PNR to enable consumers to have access to noise information about products. Please join us to develop these ideas and find volunteers to help move this process forward.
