According to the World Health Organization, environmental noise features among the top environ-mental risks to physical and mental health and well-being. Environmental noise includes noise produced by transport traffic, industrial activities, neighborhood and leisure activities. Among the leisure activi-ties which may cause hearing impairment and environmental noise annoyance include fireworks, shoot-ing ranges, car racing and outdoor music activities; this study focuses on the latter. The regulations of Australia, Belgium, France, United Kingdom and Canada (Montréal) are analysed in order to provide a comprehensive comparison. It is shown that regulations are not harmonized, many different indicators and values are used to protect attendees or residents living in noise sensitive areas.
