The fourth and last meeting has taken place in Cork. The port authority warmly welcomed us and showed us around in their Board room and organized a boat tour to see their ports and the noise issues they are dealing with.

During our last meeting we shared our experiences with testing the Measurement Protocol, our final thoughts on the Best Practice Guide and discussed the guidelines for Classification.

After this meeting the Measurement Protocol will be adjusted taken into consideration the modifications and experiences by using it. The Best Practice Guide was approved. The Classification still needed some more discussion amongst the noise expert,s so it has been decided upon to further evaluate and finalize this deliverable in a small committee in the upcoming month.

The Project Board will meet again in 2019 during the final Conference in Rotterdam. During this congress we will elaborate on our deliverables and we will start the desimination and implementation phase together with the stakeholders which show interest in the congress.
