WHO ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE GUIDELINES FOR THE EUROPEAN REGION 2018 - WHAT COULD THEY MEAN FOR THE UK?
WEDNESDAY 16 JANUARY 2019
1030 - 1600
RIBA, JARVIS HALL, 66 PORTLAND PLACE, LONDON W1B 1AD

In October 2018 the World Health Organisation published its Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region.  The guidelines in part replace the 1999 Community Noise Guidelines, and augment the Night Noise Guidelines 2009.  There have been significant advancements in our understanding of the health effects of noise since 1999, and although many areas of uncertainty remain, the new guidelines provide clear target levels and recommendations for actions to reduce road, rail and aircraft transportation noise, wind turbine noise and leisure noise (exposure to noise at venues and from personal listening devices).  The conference will provide insight into how the guidelines were developed and what they mean, followed by debate on the strength of the evidence base and their possible implications to the assessment and management of environmental noise in the UK in years to come.
