In Queensland, environmental noise is regulated by the Environmental Protection Act 1994 and the Environmental Protection (Noise) Policy 2008.  This policy specifies environmental values to be enhanced or protected. The policy requires that a suitable acoustic environment is maintained at sensitive receptors, for individuals to sleep, study, learn or be involved in recreation, including relaxation and conversation. Australian Standard 1055 – Measurement of Environmental Noise, specifies that measurement of environmental noise meet certain technical requirements.

Acoustic quality objectives for sensitive receptors are detailed in schedule 1 of the Environmental Protection (Noise) Policy 2008. It is intended that the acoustic quality objectives be progressively achieved as part of achieving the purpose of this policy over the long term.

It is often cost effective to conduct an environmental noise assessment consecutively with a workplace noise assessment.
