PACE calls on governments to 'take all reasonable measures' to
reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields

Strasbourg, 27.05.2011 The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council
of Europe (PACE), meeting in Kyiv at Standing Committee level, today
called on European governments to 'take all reasonable measures'
to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio
frequencies from mobile phones, 'and particularly the exposure to
children and young people who seem to be most at risk from head

According to parliamentarians, governments should ''for children in
general, and particularly in schools and classrooms, give preference
to wired Internet connections, and strictly regulate the use of mobile
phones by schoolchildren on school premises'', and put in place
information and awareness-raising campaigns on the risks of
potentially harmful long-term biological effects on the environment
and on human health, especially 'targeting children, teenagers and
young people of reproductive age'.

Following the proposals of the rapporteur (Jean Huss, Luxembourg,
SOC), the Assembly called on governments to provide information on
potential health risks of DECT-type wireless telephones, baby monitors
and other domestic appliances which emit continuous pulse waves, if
all electrical equipment is left permanently on standby. They should,
instead, recommend 'the use of wired, fixed telephones at home or,
failing that, models which do not permanently emit pulse waves'.

Governments should reconsider the scientific basis for the present
electromagnetic fields exposure standards set by the International
Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, which have serious
limitations and apply as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA)

The adopted resolution underlines the fact that 'the precautionary
principle should be applicable when scientific evaluation does not
allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty' and
stresses that 'the issue of independence and credibility of
scientific expertise is crucial' to achieve a transparent and
balanced assessment of potential negative impacts on the environment
and human health.
