inline-photo-refinery-nightIn 2012, NCIA completed its development of a Regional Noise Management Plan, in collaboration with the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB), which provides a regional approach for managing environmental noise from industrial activity. It is the first-of-its-kind in North America in applying industry best practices for noise management.

The RNMP is designed to help minimize the impact of noise levels from NCIA member companies’ industrial facilities. Through the plan, member companies are to adopt best practice principles for noise management and implement the plan on the basis of what is achievable and practical to address the following:

  • Normal operating conditions
  • Routine planned event strategies
  • New facility standards
