Abstract: Environmental noise in the European Union is affecting a major part of the population with significant number of premature deaths and impact on the economy. The European regulatory framework provides for different means to tackle the problem and reduce the risk of health implications, by setting obligations for noise mapping, action plans and limits on the source emissions. But still a delayed implementation of the European regulation and the absence of an ambition level in the European Union prevented the possibility to set up an effective policy on noise abatement. The European Commission services are involved in a set of actions and are proposing a set of legislative acts aimed at improving the situation.
