The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is proud to announce a $350,000 contribution to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) research into the health impacts of radio waves, including those used in mobile telecommunications.
The Government’s Electromagnetic Energy (EME) Program aims to build public confidence in the safety of telecommunications networks, and address misinformation about EME emissions. The EME program will provide the public with clear, reliable and reputable information on new EME based technologies like 5G, and advice on how to use this technology safely. ARPANSA will support this vision by delivering evidence-based scientific advice on EME and health.
Radiated fields from cellular telephone base stations must comply with safety limits imposed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority. In many cases this includes preparing an Environmental EME Report.
