EMM hosted an event with key EPA noise policy staff following release of the new “Noise Policy for Industry” on 27 October 2017 which replaced the existing Industrial Noise Policy (2000).

The new document balances the need for industrial activity with the community’s expectations to minimise noise impact. It sets assessment noise levels, consistent assessment methods, and best practice measures to manage industrial noise using latest scientific research regarding the effects of noise. Thank you to all of our clients who took the time to attend.

Features of the new policy were presented to industry stakeholders in the NSW Hunter Region, with a focus on what the changes are and what they could mean to their current operations and future approvals.

It was a very successful and informative session for all, overlooking the beautiful Newcastle beach.

Stay tuned for a similar event in Sydney in early 2018.
