WHO 2000 Guidelines for Community Noise
As the World Health Organisation suggests, the control for environmental noise has been hampered by insufficient knowledge of its effects on humans and of exposure-response relationships, as well as a lack of defined criteria.
About 40% of the population of the European Union countries is exposed to road traffic noise; about half of them are exposed to transport disturbances.
