Description / Abstract:

With the rapid development of radiocommunication technology, radiocommunication base station (RBS) facilities are widely installed in areas close to people's living environment. Base stations which are installed in residential areas might be the objects of complaint and protest because of concerns mainly about possible health risks from exposure to RF-EMF. Community opposition also brings challenges to the telecommunications operators in respect of construction, operation and maintenance. So the environmental management of compliance with RF-EMF limits is increasingly important, not only for governments but also for operators.

The purpose of this Recommendation is:

– to provide guidance on the environmental management of compliance with RF-EMF human exposure standards for radiocommunication base stations;

– to promote the harmonization of environmental management for RF-EMF emissions for telecommunications operators, and give advice on its effective management;

– to proactively identify the RF-EMF environment in areas surrounding radiocommunication base stations, and also promote the sustainable development of wireless communication technology.

Portable RF-EMF transmitters are outside the scope of this Recommendation.
