The Radiation Research Trust welcomes the following questions raised by Christel Schaldemose to the Commission:
- Does the Commission consider that these experts, who were involved in establishing the limit values for radiation, can be regarded as impartial and independent?
- Does the Commission acknowledge that a lowering of the limit values for electromagnetic radiation would entail a major financial burden for European telecommunications companies?
- Does the Commission agree that there is an acute conflict of interests involved in being or having been a member of the ICNIRP and participation in the work of the SCENIHR?
- What measures will the Commission take to find a better balance between critical and uncritical researchers on the ICNIRP?
Sadly, we believe the response by the Commission ignores the fact that the same people are addressing the science along with focusing on the limits when other objective conclusions should be included.
