Abstract Following a conference on noise and vibrations organised by the Commission of the EEC and which took place in Wigan (UK) in January 1991, the strategy of the EEC for noise control in the workplace is analysed. Directives of the EEC concerning noise immision and emission are discussed. The main focus of the EEC strategy is on the reduction of noise emission, involving two actions: noise labelling and creation of a database on noise emission.
