a) Compilation and analysis of the regulatory policies concerning human exposure to EMF that are being considered or implemented for authorizing the installation of radiocommunication sites.
b) Description of the strategies or methods for raising populations’ awareness and knowledge of, and providing them with more information on, the effects of EMF from radiocommunication systems.
c) Proposed guidelines and best practices on this matter.
d) Information on the international (mainly in WHO, ICNIRP and IEEE) activities, including updated limits of exposure levels.
e) Challenges and opportunities of developing technical regulations on the limits for maximum exposure to non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from radio base stations and specific absorption rate levels in wireless devices.
