Noise regulations fact sheet - Regulation 13 Construction sites

Fact sheet
Guidance for users of the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 (Noise Regulations) in relation to noise from construction work on construction sites.
Last updated:

The Noise Regulations set assigned (allowable) noise levels for noise received at various types of premises. However, the regulations create several special cases where noise emissions may not be required to meet these assigned levels.

When dealing with construction sites under regulation 13, the assigned noise levels set in regulations 7 and 8 do not apply to noise emitted from construction work, provided certain requirements are met.
