International Stakeholder Seminar on Radiofrequency Policies

The World Health Organization (WHO) is seeking the views of stakeholders and interested parties in the process of preparing an Environmental Health Criteria monograph on radiofrequency (RF) fields. The monograph will include a scientific review of all studied health outcomes and it will provide an overview of risk management policies and practices around the world.
 
WHO is convening a seminar on 5 June 2013 at the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) in Maisons-Alfort. The purpose of the seminar is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to present their views on specific questions to be addressed during the course of this project.
 
The discussions at the seminar and their conclusions will be considered carefully in the development of the WHO monograph.
 

The main objectives of the stakeholder seminar are :

 

  • To gather stakeholder suggestions on technical topics to be covered in the monograph that are relevant for the development of risk management practices.
  • To exchange information on national risk management practices that have been adopted or are under consideration regarding the usage of RF-based devices and technologies, based on a WHO survey undertaken in late 2012.
  • To discuss the rationale for and the impact of risk management practices in different countries.
