Abstract Since 1 August 1987 statutory regulations have been in force in the Netherlands to reduce hazardous noise at the workplace as much as possible. At the end of 1991, Directive 86/188/EEC (see CIS 87-45) of the European Communities concerning the protection of workers against noise was implemented into Dutch legislation. This resulted in some important modifications. In this directive the new provisions are given and explained in detail. The role of industry and of the Labour Inspectorate in the matter are described. Recommendations and instructions are given on noise measurement and on the interpretation of its results.
