The preparation of objective legislation to control noise from motor vehicles is well advanced in Australia and enforcement has commenced in some Australian States. A design rule setting criteria for noise emissions from new vehicles was published by the Federal Department of Transport in 1972 and a revised design rule reducing the maximum permissible levels was finalized in 1976 but its implementation has been deferred. Following extensive surveys, regulations setting criteria for in-service vehicles have been prepared by the Environment Protection Authority in Victoria and it is anticipated that these criteria will be adopted by all States in Australia.
