A Word About the New Jersey Noise Control Council
In Affiliation with the Bureau of Local Environmental Management

The New Jersey Noise Control Council is a 13 member advisory body established pursuant to the Noise Control Act, N.J.S.A. 13:1G-1 et seq. (the Act), with nine public members appointed by the Governor and four representatives from various State Departments. Members serve four-year terms without compensation and are charged with considering matters related to noise control and making recommendations to the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) on noise control regulations. They are empowered to veto the adoption, amendment or repeal of any codes, rule or regulation for the control of noise (N.J.S.A. 13:1G-18i). Meetings are held approximately ten times per year on the second Tuesday of each month at the Operator Training Center at Cook College Campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
