PROJECT OVERVIEW BIAS is a LIFE+ project with the ultimate goal to secure that the introduction of underwater noise is at levels that do not adversely affect the marine environment of the Baltic Sea. BIAS will work towards this goal by bridging the gap between the indicators of Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) descriptor 11 and actual management of human-induced underwater noise.

BIAS will help the Member States to establish a collaborative approach for increasing the efficiency of the implementation of the MSFD descriptor 11. Large efforts will be put into dissemination and implementation involving relevant authorities, managers, stakeholders and other relevant bodies on local, national and EU levels.

The project runs September 2012 – August 2016.
