The placement of antennas, mobile phone masts and high-voltage power lines should be negotiated – European Parliament Resolution

April 2, 2009 – European Parliament Resolution of 2 April 2009 on health concerns associated with electromagnetic fields. The report was adopted with 559 votes in favor, 22 against and 8 abstentions.

The placement of antennas, mobile phone masts and high-voltage power lines should be negotiated between industry actors, public authorities and residents’ associations in order to minimize health risks and legal action cases. This will also ensure that EMF-transmitting devices are kept clear of schools, crèches, retirement homes and health care institutions. In addition to this, the House recommends that mobile telephone operators should negotiate to share infrastructure in order to reduce “the exposure of the public to EMFs.”
Aggressive marketing campaigns by telephone operators, including “the sale of mobile phones designed solely for children or free call time packages aimed at teenagers” are also condemned by MEPs.
