Intruder alarms

The Control of Noise (Code of Practice on Noise from Audible Intruder Alarms) Order 1981 was withdrawn by the Government on 22 October 2014, although the guidance on how to reduce noise nuisance caused by faulty intruder alarms contained within the Code still stands.  Allowing an alarm to ring unnecessarily may be considered a statutory nuisance and it is therefore good practice to comply with the advice in the Code.

Use this form for the purpose of notifying the Local Environmental Health Authority about the installation of a new alarm system or a change of alarm holder.
