- Dutch law; the EEC Regulation 95/93, as amended, is implemented via national legislation in the Royal Decree Slot allocation and Ministerial Decisions. The Ministerial Decisions (Besluit Slotallocatie) deal with the designation of coordinated airports in the Netherlands, the designation of SACN as the independent slot coordinator and the designation of a Coordination Committee. Laws and decisions setting limits to the production of noise by operating aircraft at airports.
