Introduction to the work and the core team of ANCA

The functions of the competent authority are assigned by legislation to the Chief Executive of Fingal County Council who is assisted by a core team of designated staff to assist in the performance of her duties. The Competent Authority team is supplemented and supported by specialist experts when necessary to ensure that its functions are discharged in accordance with the rules and procedures of the legislation. 

The Competent Authority is responsible for ensuring that noise generated by aircraft activity at Dublin Airport is assessed in accordance with EU and Irish legislation and to ensure that the Balanced Approach of the International Civil Aviation Organization is applied where a noise problem at the airport is identified. 

Our role includes a monitoring aspect, associated with compliance and implementation of noise mitigation measures and operating restrictions. 

We review planning applications for development at the airport to determine if there is an aspect of the application that would cause an aircraft generated noise problem.
