The ISO standard excludes this last requirement. One should indicate however in the test report, the frequencies a which a difference of 8 dB or more occurs between the noise reduction curve and the STC contour. When the STC contour is positioned in such a way that these two requirements are satisfied the sound transmission class can be obtained by reading the transmission loss value at the intersection of the STC contour at the frequency of 500 Hz. This value corresponds to the STC of the partition.
