INCE-USA actively participates in the development of public policy regarding noise and its control. For background information on national and international noise policy, refer to a collection of papers on the CD-ROM produced for NOISECON 2005. In addition to the papers presented at the conference and the proceedings of all NOISECON conferences beginning in 1996, noise policy papers have been collected from a number of sources and included on the CD-ROM. Some of the papers are also available online from the American Institute of Physics (AIP): see the links in the items below.
