Noise Emission in the Environment Directive 2000/14/EC
Directive 2000/14/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 May 2000 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the noise emission in the environment by equipment for use outdoors
The aim of the Noise Emission in the Environment Directive is to harmonise the laws of the Member States relating to noise emission standards, conformity assessment procedures, marking, technical documentation and collection of data concerning the noise emission in the environment of equipment for use outdoors. It contributes to the smooth functioning of the internal market, while protecting human health and well-being.
The noise emission in the environment by equipment for use outdoors Directive covers only equipment that is placed on the market or put into service as an entire unit suitable for the intended use. The non-powered attachments that are separately sold or put into service are excluded, except for hand-held concrete-breakers and picks as well as hydraulic hammers.
