ICCAN is the Independent Commission

on Civil Aviation Noise

Our aim is to improve public confidence and trust in the management of aviation noise

We are a non-statutory, advisory body created to provide independent, impartial advice to government, regulators and the UK aviation industry. We use this website to update on our work, publish our guidance and reports, and provide simple, easy-to-understand information about how aviation noise can be measured, mitigated and managed.

In June 2020, we produced a progress report on our first Corporate Strategy, which sets out what we want to achieve in our first two years. In July 2020 we published A review of aviation noise metrics and measurement and a Toolkit for consulting on airspace change. 

In September 2020, we published a review of the links between aviation noise and public health. In October 2020, we published a survey of people’s experiences of aviation noise during the lockdown period, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. In December 2019 we completed a Review of the Survey of Noise Attitudes 2014.
