Target Shooting Ranges: Application Note for Assessing Noise Compliance

The Protection of the Environment Operations (Noise Control) Regulation 2017 now specifies the methods that must be used when measuring noise from shooting ranges for the purposes of a requirement under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.


This application note has been developed to make the assessment of compliance with noise limits for shooting ranges more transparent and consistent. It also improves certainty for the community, regulators and range operators. It does not introduce new policy or change noise limits for existing or future ranges.
