Stellungnahme der EU-Kommission, 20.5. 2019
Die EU-Kommission hat in einer Anfragebeantwortung zweier Abgeordneter des EU Parlaments im Mai 2019 folgendes festgehalten:
- ‘…the strict and safe exposure limits for electromagnetic fields recommended at EU level by Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC on the exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields apply for all frequency bands currently envisaged for 5G.’
- The 5G networks are expected to have similar or lower levels of emission than 4G networks. Combined with 4G a modest cumulative increase is possible in dense areas, still far below the limits. These limits are based on independent guidance issued by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). Therefore an impact assessment is not considered necessary. The ICNIRP is reviewing its guidelines after public consultation. The Commission is looking forward to the conclusions.
