Abstract: A few years ago it was being said that noise is the inescapable price of progress. Today it is apparent that our legislators dont think so. At the federal level we have the Occupational Safety and Health Act and the Noise Control Act of 1972. At least seven states have established regulations limiting noise emissions across property lines from stationary sources, and many states have noise emission limits for motor vehicles, motor boats and snowmobiles. At the local level, a 1975 study showed 539 cities with some kind of noise ordinance, an increase of 23% over the 1974 figure of 440 cities. In this kind of regulatory climate, it becomes necessary for all industries to determine the extent to which they comply, or fail to comply, with these regulations, and to determine what they can do so that they can continue to function.
