We regulate music noise
We are responsible for making regulations and guidelines for controlling music noise from venues and other public places.
Police can direct indoor entertainment venues to immediately stop noise after midnight.
Other authorities – such as councils, and Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation – have their own laws for music noise from entertainment venues. Also, they can use the noise limits guidelines to help with their investigations. We can advise them on the best way to apply the noise limits and guidelines. We can also help them to measure the music noise.
We issue event permits
EPA is responsible for issuing event permits to make sure music noise from events will comply with the law.
