Monitoring procedure in the vehicle noise regulation

In 2007/2008, UNECE and the European Commission launched a monitoring procedure for two years’ application. The purpose of this procedure is to enable the European Commission and UNECE/WP29/GRB to establish new limit values to be applied on the new test method ECE51 (method B). To provide relevant conclusions and recommendations, ACEA contracted with UTAC and TUEV Nord to perform this study in parallel with the European Commission’s consultant.

The study of the project consists of the following items: data collection, data analysis and proposals for new subcategories, consultations with stakeholders and calculation of costeffectiveness for further limit value reductions.
