The Environmental Noise Directive (END) requires EU member states to assess exposure to noise from key transport and industrial sources with two initial reporting phases: 2007 and 2012. Where the recommended thresholds for day and night indicators are exceeded, action plans are to be implemented. These country fact sheets present data related to END assessments as reported to EEA by 15th April 2016 for the two key END indicators: Lden (day evening and night exposure) and Lnight (night time exposure). 2012 strategic noise maps reported are presented, as well as HIA calculations for annoyance and sleep disturbance, hospital admissions and mortality. Trends are presented as the change in exposure from 2007 to 2012, for comparable sources only.
