Model Legislation

The mobile communications industry encourages governments to adopt radio frequency (RF) exposure limits for mobile communications infrastructure that are based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Compliance with these recommendations will provide protection for all persons against all established health risks from exposures to RF signals.

If a national framework for the adoption of these standards does not exist, the World Health Organization has developed Model Legislation that provides the legal framework for implementing protection programs against non-ionizing radiation. The WHO's Model Legislation package comprises a Model Act, a Model Regulation and an Explanatory Memorandum describing the approach to the Act and its Regulations.
