For sound levels, the province of Nova Scotia has published a noise guideline, “Guideline for Environmental Noise Measurement and Assessment” (NSE 1989). This guideline includes noise criteria for different periods of the day (day, evening and night) and requires that the measurement duration be a minimum of two continuous hours of data in ...
The Environmental Noise Guidelines aim to support the legislation and policy-making process on local, national and international level. The WHO guideline values are public health-oriented recommendations, based on scientific evidence of the health effects and on an assessment of achievable noise levels.
Acoustics — Description, measurement and assessment of environmental noise — Part 2: Determination of environmental noise levels 1 Scope This part of ISO 1996 describes how sound pressure levels can be determined by direct measurement, by extrapolation of measurement results by means of calculation, or exclusively by calculation, intended as a
TECHNICAL GUIDELINE FOR LAND TRAFFIC NOISE IMPACT ASSESSMENT [AS AT 1 JUL 16] Purpose This technical guideline serves to provide general reference for acoustic consultants and Qualified Persons (QPs) to prepare land traffic Noise Impact Assessment (NIA) for designated projects. A typical NIA would take about 1-2 months to complete and sufficient time should be catered for

We hope you ...
for Environmental Noise Limits and Control provide noise acceptance criteria for quantitative assessment of noise to deﬁne disturbance or otherwise. The Guidelines for Noise Labeling and Emission Limits of Outdoor Sources prescribes comprehensive methodology to measure and report noise emission from outdoor sources. The Planning Guidelines for Vibration Limits and Control gives
What is Environmental Monitoring and Assessment. Environmental monitoring and Assessment is defined as process of methodical sampling of air, water, soil, Noise and ecosystem in order to observe and research the environment and Testing in Laboratory. Environmental monitoring helps us to identify effects of pollution and educate public to create awareness of environmental conditions.
The guidelines focus on the WHO European Region and provide policy guidance to Member States that is compatible with the noise indicators used in the European Union’s END (European Union Directive 2002/49/ EC relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise). The Executive Summary is attached.
Exposure to outdoor noise is monitored under the Environmental Noise Directive (END) against two thresholds; an indicator for the day, evening and night periods (Lden) that measures exposure to noise levels associated with ‘annoyance’ and an indicator for night periods (Lnight) that is designed to assess sleep disturbance. These thresholds do not correspond directly to the WHO recommended ...
Environmental Monitoring and Assessment discusses technical developments and data arising from environmental monitoring and assessment, principles in the design of monitoring systems, and the use of monitoring data in assessing the consequences

Many environmental noise complaints give rise to the need for an objective environmental assessment. In practice complaints may be triggered by a number of factors, e.g., the intensification of activities on a site, a change in site operations, or a change in the noise emissions from a particular process. In addition, some complaints arise due to changes at a noise sensitive location, e.g ...

ISO 1996-1:2003 defines the basic quantities to be used for the description of noise in community environments and describes basic assessment procedures. It also specifies methods to assess environmental noise and gives guidance on predicting the potential annoyance response of a community to long-term exposure from various types of environmental noises. The sound sources
