Consultation description

This consultation asked for views on the future of the Code of Practice on Noise from Ice-Cream Van Chimes Etc. 1982. The Code gives guidance on methods of reducing annoyance caused by the operation of loudspeakers fixed to ice-cream vans and similar vehicles used to sell perishable goods to the public. This included the volume, playing time, frequency, and use of chimes in sensitive areas. Views were asked for whether to alter the restrictions recommended in the Code, whether to revoke the Code, or to leave it unchanged.

The consultation was carried out as an outcome of the Red Tape Challenge, a campaign to reduce unnecessary regulation on businesses.
