    The JRC has published today a report with new Common Noise Assessment Methods (CNOSSOS-EU) that will enable the production of comparable data on noise exposure from road, rail, air traffic and industry in Europe. This is a prerequisite for the effective implementation of the EU policy on noise that aims to reduce noise pollution, a growing health and economic concern. Member States will have to start using the new methods for the next round of EU-wide strategic noise mapping in 2017.
