Following EU Directive 89/106 on construction products, in 2006 the UNI EN 14351-1 product standard was published. The standard, which includes other standards regarding the tests to be carried out to determine performance levels, obliges the manufacturer to provide data relating to the tests of water tightness, wind resistance, sound insulation, thermal insulation and air permeability. The manufacturer is given the opportunity to also voluntarily highlight the services related to Mechanical resistance, Bullet resistance, Explosion resistance, Durability or Resistance to burglary (in particular depending on the intended use).

The standards are identified by an alphanumeric code which highlights the type of standard with national value (IT for Italy), European value (EN for Europe) and international value (ISO for international standard organization) and the number of the standard itself at the time of publication. The combination of two suffixes, e.g. UNI EN, indicates the European value in Italian and therefore corresponds to the official Italian translation from the original text. These standards have a counterpart for each European country e.g. UNI DIN for Germany. The standards that add the suffix V, are experimental and indicate the voluntary application by the manufacturer in reference to the directive and therefore the non-mandatory (ENV voluntary European standard).

The provisions indicated herein and provided for by the Community directives completely replace and cancel any previous national provisions (whether Italian or from another European country).

The standard defines the parameter evaluation indices for the airborne sound insulation of buildings and building elements, takes into consideration the different sound level spectra of various noise sources such as noise sources inside a building and traffic outside a building, prescribes rules to determine these parameters based on the results of measurements carried out in third of octave or octave bands in accordance with UNI EN ISO 140 parts 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10. The update completes the information on data rounding off to eliminate possible different interpretations, especially when they are translated into calculation software.
