Green Paper aims to revive EC noise policy

The first serious attempt to establish an EC policy on noise pollution was launched by the European Commission in November. The main proposals outlined in a Green Paper include a Directive to harmonise noise measurement methods and require local assessments of noise exposures, possibly backed by a duty to meet future noise targets. The Commission is also planning a combination of legislation, voluntary agreements and economic incentives to curb noise from vehicles, aircraft and railways, along with a framework Directive on noise from construction products and other outdoor machinery.1
