Shaping the future of outdoor noise legislation: Orgalime comments to the European Commission’s evaluation and impact assessment of Directive 2000/14/EC on noise emission by outdoor equipment

Published: 21 December 2018

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Orgalime represents a wide variety of companies that manufacture equipment used outdoors, such as garden equipment machinery, cranes and lifting equipment, and equipment used in the construction sector in general. 

Orgalime welcomes the Outdoor Noise Directive (OND) evaluation and impact assessment reports and believes that this piece of legislation needs to be adapted. We agree with most of the findings and believe that the documents will serve as a good base for the future EC proposal on OND.
