Worldwide Policies on Cell Phones, Electromagnetic Fields and Wireless
The US, Australia and Japan along with several other countries, have limits that are high in comparison to Russia, China and several Eastern European countries. They allow the highest levels of ambient radiofrequency in the environment- their public exposure limits for networks and base station.
Over a Dozen Countries have Stricter Limits or Official Precautionary Recommendations by Government Agencies for Magnetic Fields ELF-EMF
Sensitive Areas and Minimizing Exposure to Residences: Croatia, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Belgium (Wallonia, Flanders) Denmark, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Poland
People ask “Where can I find the wireless radiation limits for various countries to compare these limits?” In response Environmental Health Trust has compiled the following references that document these countries network base station exposure limits:
- Comparison of international policies on electromagnetic fields (power frequency and radiofrequency fields), Rianne Stam, National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, RIVM
- World Health Organization EMF Project “Exposure limits for radio-frequency fields (public) Data by country” (EHT Note: Does not include several countries.)
Below we have listed countries that have various regulations in place regarding cell phones, Wi-Fi in school, magnetic fields and more. It is not a complete list but a sampling.
