What it contains

This protocol will apply from 1 July 2021. 

It provides a protocol for determining noise limits for new and existing commercial, industrial and trade premises and entertainment venues. It also sets the methodology for assessing the effective noise level to determine unreasonable noise under the proposed Environment Protection Regulations.

A draft of this document was published for comment on the Engage Victoria website in September 2019, as part of a proposed package of subordinate legislation. The changes made to this document (compared to the draft) will be explained in a 'summary response to comments' publication. We plan to publish the summary when the regulations and standards are made.
