Noise regulation · consultants
Noise regulation includes statutes or guidelines relating to sound transmission established by national, state or provincial and municipal levels of government. Although the UK and Japan enacted national laws in 1960 and 1967 respectively, these laws were not at all comprehensive or fully enforceable as to address generally rising ambient noise, enforceable numerical source limits on aircraft and motor vehicles or comprehensive directives to local government. After the watershed passage of the United States Noise Control Act of 1972, other local and state governments passed further regulations.
