GSMA statement: European Parliament’s EMF resolution

On 2 April 2009, the European Parliament voted for science-based exposure limits for electromagnetic fields from wireless technologies. This Resolution will contribute to public confidence in the safety of mobile communications. It is clear support for the European Commission’s policy on radio signals and is consistent with the position of the World Health Organization that current safety recommendations protect everyone.

The GSMA welcomes the recommendation of the European Parliament that public safety standards should continue to be regularly reviewed in the light of new scientific findings. Importantly, the Resolution confirmed that planning policies for mobile network antennas should be ‘determined by scientific criteria’. This is consistent with the views of the European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, 17 February 2009, which voted, by a majority of 43 to one, to reject proposals for arbitrary exclusion zones.
