Abstract This article reviews the provisions specified by the new Royal Decree 286/2006 on noise at the place of work, which transposes Directive 2003/10/EC on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to noise into Spanish legislation. It compares the more stringent requirements of the new Decree with those of Royal Decree 1318/89 in force until now. The main changes introduced in R.D. 286/2006 involve new exposure limits and the preventive measures to be adopted. The methods for estimating noise levels according to the UNE-ES ISO 4869-2 standard are also presented.
