ARPANSA and ACEBR
We will call for a parliamentary enquiry or Royal commission investigating the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and the Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research (ACEBR) for their various omissions, such as having:
a. failed to set 0.3 μT as the safety limit for exposure to harmful man-magnetic fields such as microwaves and EMR from 2G – 5G technology
b. failed to educate the public of the health risks associated with exposure to long term magnetic and electric fields
c. advised the Australian and State Government health departments and the Australian public on health effects when they are not medically qualified to do so
d. failed to heed medical advice re risk of harm to health to the Australian public
e. provided health advice in conflict with the WHO’s publication ‘The International Classification of Diseases’ (ICD-10). The ICD-10 is adopted by the medical profession globally as a code for diagnosis which recognises exposure to non-ionizing radiation (in particular radio frequency radiation) as an adverse health effect
f. given health advice that contradicts the Australian Government’s Specialist Medical Review Council relating to non-ionising radiation contributing to chronic lymphocytic leukaemia in the same category as benzene, dioxin and asbestos
g. followed the recommendations of a non-government organisation the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) safety standard as 200 μT instead of IARC and the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommendation of 0.3 μT. International courts and tribunals have ruled that ICNIRP’s health and safety advice is conflicted as it has strong ties to the telecommunications industry.
h. possibly similar conflicts of interest as above
i. not published safety standards (ARPANSA) to protect the Australian public from EMR between the 0 to 3 kilohertz range, a range which is used in 5G technology
j. provided electromagnetic field meters for hire (ARPANSA) to the Australian public that are not suitable for the measurement of radiofrequency fields, electric fields and magnetic fields emitted from telecommunications sources such as mobile phones, mobile phone towers, Wi-Fi, smart meters etc
k. given conflicting advice (ARPANSA) when advising that there are no adverse health effects while acknowledging in its own supporting documents that long term exposure to non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation can cause radiation poisoning which has no cure
l. failed to disclose to the public under the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) to the public via reports on the regulated Radio Frequency National Site Archive (RFNSA) as to magnetic field (uT) exposure from mobile phone base stations and small cell facilities.
We will urge ARPANSA to amend its current ‘Radiation Protection Series 3 – Radiation Protection Standard for Maximum Exposure Levels to Radiofrequency Fields – 3 kHz to 300 GHz (2002)’ to 0 to 300 GHz.
We will promote organisations such as the Australian Medical Association (AMA), the Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association Inc (ORSAA), the Australasian Society of Building Biologists (ASBB), Australian Government’s Specialist Medical Review Council, Physicians for Safe Technology (PST) and the like to participate as members of advisory boards to the ARPANSA, ACEBR and ACMA and similar agencies that advise the Australian government, Industry and the Australian Public on EMR health and safety issues.
