The review of the Outdoor Noise Directive (2000/14/EC)

EGMF Position paper on the review of the Outdoor Noise Directive (2000/14/EC)

EGMF gives its views on the main aspects to be tackled during the review of the Outdoor Noise Directive (2000/14/EC), notably the noise limit values, measurement methods, conformity assessment, labelling and the database. EGMF believes that a review that successfully underpins the growth and competitiveness of the EU manufacturing industry should be built upon at least the following recommendations: 1. Enabling self-certification for all product categories; 2. Ensuring effective and proper market surveillance; and 3. Preserving current noise limits and maintaining the current classification differentiation between products with fixed noise limit values (Article 12) and products to be labelled (Article 13).
