Noise Emission Standards of Equipment for Outdoor Use
Impact assessment study on a possible amendment of noise emission standards of equipment for outdoor use
The EU regulates noise emissions of equipment for outdoor use in directive 2001/14/EC and an amending directive 2005/88/EC. The latter one made the standards only indicative for some types of equipment. The EU has to make a decision on the amendment of the directive.
To support the EU decision making, this study analysed whether the indicative values should be made compulsory. The basis for this study was a technical study of TNO.
The analysis was made based on a multi criteria analysis using efficiency, effectiveness and consistency criteria. This takes into account a detailed impact analysis which looks at environmental, economic and social effects of the different options.
