Good Practice guide on Noise Exposure and Potential Health Effects

17th Nov, 2010

The European Environment Agency has recently announced the publication of a guide which is intended to assist policy makers, competent authorities and other interested parties in their understanding and fulfilment of the action planning requirements of Directive 2002/49/EC.

This good practice guide provides information on current knowledge about the effects of noise on health and makes recommendations on linking action planning to recent evidence relating to the health impacts of environmental noise and the Night Noise Guidelines for Europe published by the World Health Organisation.

The good practice guide is available online at the European Environment Agencies website.
