About Us

Fingal County Council has been designated as the Competent Authority for the purposes of aircraft noise regulation at Dublin Airport by the Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Act 2019.  This legislation gives further effect to Regulation (EU) 598/2014 which applies  to airports with more than 50,000 civil aircraft movements per calendar year. Dublin Airport is the only airport in Ireland meeting this threshold.

Aircraft Noise Competent Authority

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.

What the Legislation Says

Regulation (EU) 598/2014 lays down, where a noise problem has been identified, rules on the process to be followed for the introduction of noise-related operating restrictions in a consistent manner on an airport-by-airport basis, so as to help improve the noise climate and to limit or reduce the number of people significantly affected by potentially harmful effects of aircraft noise, in accordance with the Balanced Approach developed by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
