The summer and winter periods regarding the working hours of the music broadcasting workplaces can be rearranged by the decision of the Provincial Environment Committee, taking into account the characteristics of the region, strategic noise maps and action plans.

As part of Loud Sound Setting to Outdoor Activities

Due to the fact that the noise is more perceptible due to the lower background sound level at night; It has been decided that the outdoor activities will be held between 10.00-01.00.

Music broadcasting licenses will be given to the music broadcasting establishments in line with the acoustic reports prepared, and in case of 3 violations of the acoustic reports within the same calendar year, the music broadcasting permission will be cancelled.

For the use of fireworks, it is obligatory to obtain permission from the local civil authority by informing the time and place.

Within the scope of “Continuous Monitoring System” to Noise

Control of noise at its source and continuous monitoring of noise sources will be ensured with the sound power limiting systems to be installed and continuous monitoring systems that will inform the Ministry electronically in the arrangements made for workplaces that broadcast music and marine vessels.

For marine vehicles broadcasting music; The border coordinates of the areas where music can be broadcast will be determined by the Decision of the Provincial Local Environment Committee, and administrative sanctions will be applied in case of activities outside the determined coordinates.

It will be ensured that the level of environmental noise emitted by the marine vessels broadcasting music will be monitored by the Provincial Directorate at the points determined on the coast, by means of a "continuous monitoring system".

Within the scope of Time Adjustment to Construction Sites

Due to the fact that the construction site activities in the residential areas are not continuous and they are periodic activities; These activities will take place between 10:00 and 22:00.

Historical buildings within the scope of "noise and vibration shield"

Environmental vibration limit values ​​have been regulated for vibration limit values ​​in regions where historical and natural structures are located, and these limit values ​​can be limited by sensitive and comprehensive vibration measurements and scientific studies to be made in areas where historical and natural structures are located.

Within the scope of Noise Map with 81

In provinces without strategic noise maps, strategic noise maps and strategic noise action plans will be prepared within three years. A database will be created that will include prepared acoustic reports, strategic noise maps and strategic noise action plans.
