Dear Mr Staudacher,

Thank You for Your book order, regarding the "Community Noise" 
document...  Copies of the new version of the documentyou refer to
have been given as a gift to the scientific experts who 
have contributed to this forthcoming WHO Environmental Health Criteria 
Document in various ways. The situation is as follows.The "Community 
Noise" document was prepared for the World Health Organization. The 
new 1995-version of the document you have seen was printed in the 
Archives of the Center for Sensory Research as a "FinalReport" to WHO 
from us (B. Berglund & T. Lindvall) as raporteurs and editors of the 
document and thus also from the WHO Temporary Advisors.  Since the 
1995-document has been delivered to the WHO, it is now their work to 
let the document go through their regular decisional processes as 
a potential WHO Environmental Health Criteria Document intended to 
replace their earlier document No. 12 printed in 1980 that was 
entitled "Noise".  Unfortunately, due to these circumstances it is not 
possible to buy the requested version of the document from us. 
However, those who would like too btain a copy of this version (as 
well as the forthcoming WHO document) should contact WHO. I have 
forwarded a copy of Your request to Professor Bonnefoy at WHO in 
Denmark, but if You want to contact him by Yourself the address is:

Professor Xavier Bonnefoy
World Health Organization
Regional Office for Europe
8 Scherfigsvej
Dk-2100 Copenhagen
Denmark
Fax +45 39 17 18 18

Yours Sincerely,
Anita Gidl f Gunnarsson
