REVIEW OF EXISTING CODES OF PRACTICE - NO01042

Description
In 1982, three Codes of Practice were approved under the procedure in S71 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974. These three codes were:

Code of Practice on Noise from Ice-Cream Van Chimes etc
Code of Practice on Noise from Model Aircraft
Code of Practice on Noise from Audible Intruder Alarms

In 2004 Defra commissioned Rupert Taylor’s practice to carry out a review of these codes. The principal objectives of the review were to assess the usage, effectiveness, and currency of the codes. A further aspect of the study was to investigate whether their ‘adopted’ status had any bearing on their effectiveness. The study was to recommend any changes necessary to the Codes in relation to their currency and the findings of the study on the adopted status and the usage of the codes.
