Sonic noise pollution..
These sonic devices[…]/black_terrier._dep._2016.pdf

Dear Sir,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA is the EU agency responsible for providing information on the European environment. The aim of the EEA is to ensure that decision-makers and the public are kept informed about the state and outlook of the environment. We are not in charge of monitoring products on the EU markets but we know that the European Commission has launched a Safety Gate, which is a rapid alert system for dangerous non-food products. Through this gate, the European Commission receives alerts from national authorities concerning dangerous products found on their markets. You can access these alerts at:[…]/index_en.htm

If you want to report a dangerous product as consumer, please contact your national product safety complaint service. The list of contact points is available at:[…]/contact_points_consumers_en.pdf

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
