Aircraft Noise CA What We Do

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 for the application of the Balanced Approach to aircraft noise management where a noise problem or potential noise problem at the Airport is identified.
