Title Electromagnetic hazards in European countries - Mobile phone base stations
Original title Zagrożenia elektromagnetyczne w państwach europejskich. Stacje bazowe telefonii komˇrkowej [in Polish]
Bibliographic information Apr. 2003, No.4 (381), p.17-19. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Mobile phone base stations are sources of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation. There is currently a lot of interest in studies on exposures of persons and the environment to such radiation. This article presents the current situation concerning legal requirements in European countries with respect to assessment criteria and measurement methods for radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile telephony base stations and concludes that there are currently no uniform standards or laws, each country adopting its own solutions.
