Consultation on Scientific Review for the upcoming WHO Environmental Health Criteria

0 Comment

The BioInitiative Working Group will reserve comment at this time on the partially completed health risk assessment of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields. For serious effort to be expended, the draft must contain a summary, health risk assessment and protective measures in addition to science chapters alone.  >> DOWNLOAD PDF

The WHO process has been flawed by partitioning off key sections, undercutting meaningful review. This issue is of global public health importance. Scientific and public health reviewers, as well as with many in the public domain care deeply about this
issue. It is essential that the process meets minimal criteria for conduct, which have been lacking to date. To improve credibility of the process, the BIWG urges you to provide a complete draft document in 2015 and allow for a second round of comment with sufficient time for review, holding open the comment period for scientific content.
