The negative effects caused by noise in the society are observed in the literature by several authors (Berglund & Lindvall, eds, 1995). The negative effects of noise can be direct (hearing loss, speech difficulties, sleep disorder), indirect or secondary effects, such as long-term effects on physical and mental health as a result of long-term disturbance of noise exposure and prolonged sleep disorder.
Considering that the World Health Organization (WHO 1947) defines health as complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease, commitment to the community in the control and management of environmental noise is a quite clear. Job (1996) highlights the indirect adverse health effects of noise, as probable cause for the reaction of society, in order to take appropriate measures for its control. The common goal is to satisfy necessity that all activities in the community must comply with the desire of people to quietly society.
Operational objectives include requirements for the protection, promotion and improvement of quality of life, or the need for environmentally sustainable development, reducing health risks and prevent environmental degradation. This policy seeks to promote environmental well-being by preventing and minimizing noise.
In this paper will be given a review of main processes involved in the implementation of policy for control and management of noise level.
