Expert group reports regarding wireless technologies

These reports were mentioned by Dr Bernard Veyret during his keynote speech at Science & Wireless 2009:

The National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI):

Information on cancer clusters and some facts about the disease in general.

World Health Organisation (WHO)/ACRBR Radiofrequency Safety Workshop:

Held at Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia in November 2005. Follow the link for more information.

Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA):

Federal Government agency charged with responsibility for protecting the health and safety of people, and the environment, from the harmful effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Follow the link for their website.

John Moulder's cell phone and base station FAQ:

This site created by John Moulder, Professor of Radiation Oncology, Medical College of Wisconsin, in the U.S.A. addresses the issue of whether base station transmitter/antennas for mobile phones (cellular phones, PCS phones), and other types of portable transceivers are a risk to human health. For more information follow the link.

The UK National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB):

On 1 April 2005 the National Radiological Protection Board merged with the Health Protection Agency forming its new Radiation Protection Division. Part of the Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, the Division carries out the Health Protection Agency’s work on ionising and non-ionising radiations. It undertakes research to advance knowledge about protection from the risks of these radiations; provides laboratory and technical services; runs training courses; provides expert information and has a significant advisory role in the UK. Follow the link to their website.

International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection

(ICNIRP) Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) standard:

Follow the link to access and download publications on EMF standards from the ICNIRP database

The Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR):

The Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR) is a group of experts on  health and safety issues related to electromagnetic fields, from power line through microwave frequency ranges. COMAR is a Technical Committee of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It reports to the EMBS President and Administrative Committee. COMAR's primary area of interest is biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation. It examines and interprets the biological effects and presents its findings in an authoritative manner, usually in Technical Information Statements (TIS) or Position Papers. These papers are subject to an extensive review process within the Committee and represent the consensus of the Committee. COMAR does not establish safety standards, but it has an interest in the standards activity within its scope.

Follow the link for a selected list of the committee's publications.
