Electromagnetic fields (EMF)

International Organizations


International Telecommunications Union (ITU)

ITU promotes the development and efficient operation of telecommunications facilities. As the international organization responsible for advising national governments and industry on telecommunications, ITU is aware of the controversy surrounding the possible health effects of EMF and has established a working committee (ITU-T Study Group 5) to compile appropriate information on this subject. ITU has much information on current and future communications systems that will greatly assist the EMF Project.
