The main objectives of Switzerland’s noise abatement policy are to protect the health of the population and create a high quality of life. It is therefore essential to focus more strongly on the prevention of noise directly at source.
Noise levels are measured or evaluated in a standardised manner in order to enable subsequent comparison of the measured data with the legal requirements. This page contains an overview of the relevant documents on the determination of noise levels.
More information on noise is available in German, French and Italian
