Dear Members and ARC friends,
The Regulation 598/2014 «on the establishment of rules and procedures with regard to the introduction of noise-related operating restrictions at Union airports» will enter into force in June 2016.  
This Regulation will be core for all actions related to and dealing with the heated topic of noise nearby airports. Local and regional authorities need to know precisely what this Regulation is about, and what will be feasible in the very next future to answer residents’ needs and questions.  
We want to remind you of the workshop that we are organising on 20 November, which is dedicated primarily to local authorities, municipalities and regions involved in managing the impact of their airport, but is open to all. Local and regional authorities will pursue dialogue with the European Institutions and industry.  

Be part of this dialogue, register for the day!
