The paper describes the essential functional and operational features of the Under Sleeper Pads (USPs), used in ballasted rail track systems. The overview of appropriate test methods for determining the values of relevant parameters for the purposes of using vibro-acoustic isolators was presented, with special attention drown to the changes resulting from the introduction of the PN-EN 16730 standard in this field. Due to the given testing procedures for USPs, selected examples of the normative testing methods of the USPs’ carried out at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology with the results were presented.
