The French assembly DID IT- NEW LAW ON EMF/RF
It is this proposal that the Assembly adopted today , paving the way for a parliamentary shuttle with the Senate.
"Now, at the location of antennas , a clear procedure will be set up with information of residents and the mayor, dialogue between stakeholders and conciliation in case of blockage ," says Laurence Bee . " Today's proposal also provides for identification and treatment of outliers , that is to say, the points that substantially exceeds the average nationally . Wave transmitters and wireless devices are better supported , with a clear warning consumers and a mechanism for simply turning off wifi for all devices that use it . "
"The ban wifi in nurseries as well as advertising with a glue ear are designed to protect the weakest phone , that is to say younger and encourage more reasonable practices - following in this scientific advice."
"This text also opens the way for a consideration of electro- hypersensitivity : a report on the advisability of creating electromagnetic radiation limited areas and on the effectiveness of isolating devices waves will be realized. This responds to a growing demand for some of our fellow citizens who are suffering and were now neglected, if not ignored . "
According to its author, " the key words of the text are sober as possible , transparency and consultation. Far from being punitive , ecology demonstrates that it knows to be incentive for behaviors and preventive for consideration of risks. "
François de Rugy , Co environmental group , this second adoption of an environmentalist text of the day the National Assembly (after the Law on Plant Protection Products ) " sounds like a double demonstration : that environmentalists perform well function for setting the parliamentary agenda of environmental and health issues , and the interest to participate fully in the majority - only way to adopt the solutions we carry and translate them into everyday life.

Associations expected that the debate in the National Assembly strengthens the text of the bill . Not only amendments to strengthen the text were rejected , but the proposal of the Government , the ambition of the original text has been reduced , particularly regarding children's exposure .
However, this text marks a symbolic milestone for the recognition of EHS .
Far from guaranteeing an ideal text antenna residents, laptop users and electrohypersensitive the displayed electromagnetic sobriety, the text adopted does is no less an advanced filling a persistent regulatory vacuum.
Associations hope that senators will strengthen small law adopted by the members present.
