Consultation on the evaluation of the Environmental Noise Directive

Policy field(s)


Environment (Noise policy)

Target group(s)


European citizens and associations of citizens concerned by excessive noise and any other interested stakeholder in the EU

Period of consultation


                        From 21.12.2015 to 28.03.2016

Objective of the consultation



The Commission has decided – in the context of “Better Regulation” – to evaluate the Environmental Noise Directive with a view to regulatory fitness. The Commission already collected - via an external evaluation - the views of enterprises and public bodies by means of dedicated interviews. This was followed up by an expert workshop (comments on the documents discussed at that workshop can still be submitted). With this questionnaire, the Commission is now collecting the views of citizens and associations of citizens, but also of all other interested stakeholders, addressing specifically the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and EU added value of the Environmental Noise Directive.
