The Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA) is a non-profit professional organization incorporated in Washington, DC. A primary purpose of the Institute is to promote engineering solutions to environmental, product, machinery, industrial and other noise problems. INCE/USA is a Member Society of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering, an international consortium of organizations with interests in acoustics and noise control.

INCE/USA members have access to two technical publications, the Noise Control Engineering Journal (NCEJ) and Noise/News International (NNI). NCEJ is published bi-monthly, and contains refereed journal articles on all aspects of Noise Control Engineering. NNI is published quarterly by INCE and I-INCE, and includes news on noise control activities around the world, along with general articles on noise issues and policies.
The Institute also sponsors the NOISE-CON series of national conferences on noise control engineering, and the INTER-NOISE Congress when held in North America. Practical papers on solving noise control problems, and on noise policies and regulations are presented at the conferences, and the proceedings are available from Atlas Books.
