The Environmental Management
Authority (EMA) will be cracking
down on breakfast parties which
refuse to adhere to the Noise Pol-
lution Control Rules. EMA officials
are having ongoing discussions,
not only with breakfast party pro-
moters, but all stakeholders as
Carnival draws nearer, corporate
communications officer Mario
Singh said yesterday.
He said the agency is also work-
ing with the police to ensure com-
“In terms of breakfast parties,
our managing director has sig-
nalled that we are taking a look
at it. The daytime level is from 80
decibels and then from night time
the level goes down to 65 deci-
bels,” he said.
Singh said with a noise varia-
tion there is laxity for noise to go
“a little above the noise level” but
there are certain considerations.
“In the case of breakfast par-
ties, depending on when it starts,
they will have to go to the stand-
ard noise level, or if there is a vari-
ation the level is permitted within
the variation,” he explained.
He said the EMA does not look
at the format of the event but
rather if it is complying with the
applicable noise level at the time.
“For day time there is a higher
level as opposed to night time
where there is a lower level. Let’s
say the party starts at 4 am. That
is the night time level. When it
goes to 8 am the noise level goes
up a bit because that is day time
level,” Singh said.
He said weekly discussions are
taking place with stakeholders
and factors considered include
proximity to hospitals, residences
and homes for the elderly.
“Over the years we do a roster
of events to be monitored and we
take into account sensitive recep-
tors in the area of the surrounding
“We also look at the history of
complaints and we investigate
these complaints from the pub-
lic in making a determination as
to where we would want to focus
our attention,” Singh said.
Penalties include fines from
$10,000 up. Promoters have to
place a bond with the EMA before
the event and if the decibel level
is not adhered to, the bond is au-
tomatically lost. The prescribed
fee for a single event is $250 and
$1,000 for multiple events.

Noise Pollution Control Rules
The Noise Pollution Control Rules
(NPCR) , created under provisions
of the Envionmental Management
Act Chapter 35:05, sets prescribed
standards for noise and controls
the emission of sounds in the
environment which are considered
to be noise pollution.
The NPCR refers to a ‘variation’
as a deviation from the prescribed
standards or sound levels.
It prescribes standards in three
sensitive, and industrial areas.
In general areas such as
Woodbrook, St Clair, Port-of-Spain
and environs, the night-time (8
pm–8 am) level is 65 decibels
but with a noise variation permit,
an event promoter is allowed to
exceed the prescribed level.
Holders of such permits are
required to adhere to set decibel
In cases where no noise variation
is obtained by the event promoter,
the regular (daytime or night time)
prescribed levels must be observed.
The order in which the
judges will be visiting
the bands is as follows:
• Potential Symphony,
