Noise emissions for outdoor equipment - Database

Welcome to the NOISE database - an online tool for managing the processing of declarations of conformity, in relation to Directive 2000/14/EC on noise emissions. The database is intended for use by manufacturers, authorised representatives, EU authorities and notified bodies

This information was compiled by DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs to fulfil its obligation under Article 16 of the Directive.

Users should be aware that whilst every effort was taken to ensure the accuracy of the data provided, errors may still exist.
