Abstract

This report updates the assessment of the health effects of high-frequency radiation based on newly published studies on human beings in the period from October 2006 to December 2012. It takes account of experimental field studies, epidemiological studies of population groups in their everyday environment and experimental studies with short-term exposure under controlled conditions in the laboratory, in which the influence of high-frequency radiation from fixed facilities such as broadcasting transmitters and mobile telephone base stations was studied. In the past six years, approximately 50 studies on this topic were published. Generally speaking, exposure to high-frequency radiation from fixed transmitters is pleasingly low, and at this exposure level no harmful effects on health have been scientifically established to date. In view of this, there is no call for a modification of the ambient limit values specified in the Ordinance relating to Protection from Non-Ionising Radiation (ONIR). With respect to the nonthermal effects of high-frequency radiation, there are still many gaps in scientific knowledge. In particular, there are almost no methodologically sound long-term observations. It is therefore not possible to make a reliable assessment of any potential longterm risks at this time, and consequently caution is called for, especially with regard to long-term exposure to high-frequency radiation.
