Guidance - Noise and vibration management: environmental permits

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Guidance on management of noise and vibration from installations regulated under the Industrial Emissions Directive, has just been published.

It has been produced by the EA, SEPA, NIEA and NRW.

“This guidance covers: how the environment agencies will assess noise from certain industrial processes; what the law says you must do to manage noise and vibration; advice on how to manage noise - in particular, how to carry out a noise impact assessment and what operators should include in a noise management plan”.

This guidance replaces these documents which are withdrawn: Environment Agency Horizontal Guidance for Noise (H3) Parts 1 and 2; and SEPA’s Guidance on the control of noise at PPC installations”.
