European Commission - SCENIHR asked to examine new scientific evidence

The European Commission has requested the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) to update its previous opinions on the potential health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).

On 16-17 November 2011, the International Conference on EMF and Health, organized by the European Commission under the auspices of the SCENIHR, provided an overview of the most recent scientific developments in this area as a first preparation for a future scientific opinion and led to the identification of areas that deserve special attention.

On this basis, the Commission has formulated a new request to the SCENIHR.

Submissions close on the 27th January with SCENIHR to publish the updated opinion by December 2012.
