New marine notice on reduction of underwater noise

Thursday 11 April 2024

We have issued a new marine notice on the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Revised guidelines for the reduction of underwater radiated noise from shipping to address adverse impacts on marine life.

They are intended to assist relevant stakeholders in establishing relevant mechanisms and programmes through which URN reduction efforts can be achieved.
