Betreff: Appeal to scientists. Support the manifesto of ECI for the EMF
INTERNATIONAL APPEAL TO SCIENTISTS, RESEARCHERS AND EXPERTS TO SUPPORT THE
“MANIFESTO OF EUROPEAN CITIZENS INITIATIVE” (ECI) FOR THE REGULATION OF
We are sending you this appeal for the regulation of electromagnetic fields
in the European Union (in line with the precautionary principle and the
measures recommended in Resolution 1815 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the
Council of Europe, May 25th, 2011) that we are addressing to scientists,
researchers and experts with the initial support of Spanish researchers
(like Ceferino Maestu Unturbe, Darío Acuña Castroviejo, María Jesús Azanza
Ruiz, Agustín del Moral Gámiz, Emilio Mayayo Artal, Alfonso Balmori Martínez
Enrique Navarro Camba, Jaume Segura García, Manuel Portolés, Jose Luis
Bardasano, Fidel Franco González), medical oncologists (like Jean-Loup
Mouysset of the association Ressource), professional associations
(associations like Doctors for the Environment of Switzerland, Austria and
Macedonia, the Galician Official College of Biologists, etc.), concerned
citizens and activists associations working in the field of electromagnetic
pollution and associations of people with central sensitization
environmental diseases (EHS, fibromyalgia, MCS, chronic fatigue) -from the
United Kingdom, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Spain, France, the Netherlands,
Italy, Portugal, and Sweden, to date- consumer associations (like FACUA of
Castilla y León), neighborhood associations (like the Confederación Estatal
de Asociaciones Vecinales of Spain, the Syndicate de Locataires of Belgium ..), ecology and environmental associations (Ecologistas en Acción of Spain,
Quercus of Portugal, SEPANSO of France ....).
We ask you to, please, send this appeal to scientists, researchers and
experts in your fields of activity, and to request as well the support of
your own association.
For the European groups promoting this project, it is important to
consolidate the filing of a viable European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) in
2014 to urge the European Commission to regulate EMFs from health criteria
and the precautionary principle and in line with the recommendations of
Resolution 1815 (2011), of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of
Europe on "Potential hazards of electromagnetic fields and their effects on
Thank you for your attention, and waiting for kind reply.

EUROPEAN CITIZENS' INITIATIVE (ECI) ON "ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION"
Appeal to scientists, researchers and experts to support of the
- “Manifesto of the ECI”
- Since early 2013, various citizens´ associations from different European
countries (Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, ...), with the
participation of the "International EMF Alliance" (IEMFA), have been
carrying out a process to develop a "European Citizens´Initiative"(ECI), in
order to collect a million signatures from European citizens and give rise
to a debate and positioning in the European Commission and Parliament to
take effective legislative measures in health advocacy through the
application of the Precautionary Principle and the principle ALARA (as low
as reasonably achievable) to electromagnetic pollution in line with the
recommendations of Resolution 1815, 2011, of the Parliamentary Assembly of
the Council of Europe on "The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields
and their effect on the environment"
The resulting ECI text, in order to be accepted by the European Commission
and become legally viable, will be subject to important legal and formal
limitations. For this reason, the associations involved in the process met
to develop and approve, in Madrid, June 2013, a "European Manifesto in
support the ECI" (http://www.peccemorg/DocumentacionDescarga/
HE_ECI.pdf), which is the support its principles and claims.
The organizations promoting the ECI invite scientists, researchers and
experts to sign this appeal in support of the ECI Manifesto, which
summarizes the demands contained in the Manifesto which is the basis for the future ECI:
APPEAL TO SUPPORT THE MANIFESTO OF THE EUROPEAN CITIZENS´ INITIATIVE ON
Different citizens' associations from different European countries agree on
the need of presenting a EUROPEAN CITIZENS' INITIATIVE to update current
regulation for exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
The citizen concern that has been expressed in the Special Eurobarometer 347
on electromagnetic fields has led to the European Manifesto in support the
ECI in June 2013 by the coordination of citizens' associations of different
This on the following bases:
· The recommendations of European institutions:
- The Resolution 1815 (2011), of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council
of Europe on potential hazards of electromagnetic fields and their effects
on the environment.
- The protective resolutions of the European Parliament (2007/2252 (INI) and
2008/2211 (INI)), and the recommendations of the European Environment Agency
from 2007 to present (2009, 2011, 2013)
· The scientific reviews and resolutions:
- The BioInItiative Report 2007-2012, review of over 3.800 studies.
- The Monograph of the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety
(ICEMS), "Non-Thermal Effects and Mechanisms of Interaction Between
Electromagnetic Fields and Living Matter", 2010.
- Scientific resolutions and appeals, such as ICEMS, and numerous
professional and scientific associations.
· The classification, in May 2011, by the International Agency for Research
on Cancer (IARC), of the WHO, of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as
possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for
glioma, a malignant type of brain tumor, associated with wireless phone use.
As well as the recommendation of Christopher Wild, director of the IARC:
“Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification
and findings … it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure
such as hands‐free devices or texting."
· The compliance with International conventions:
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006).
The Aarhus Convention (1998), on Access to Information, Public Participation
in Decision-Making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters.
THE MAIN PROPOSALS OF THE EUROPEAN MANIFESTO IN SUPPORT OF THE ECI ON
· Application of the precautionary principle and the ALARA (as low as
reasonably achievable) principle for electromagnetic fields (EMF) exposure.
· Minimization of EMF exposure limits, on the basis of bio-effects, and
Real-time comprehensive monitoring, starting with 0.6 V/m (outdoor) at
Radiofrequency and 1 mG at extremely low frequencies.
· Information campaigns and labeling to minimize the EMF exposure.
· Schools as Healthy Zones EMF-FREE.
· Recognition of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and protection of
the electro-hypersensitive people in health areas, workplaces, public and
· Promotion and establishment of networks, technologies and techniques which
are biocompatible and sustainable.
· Health standards and social code for protection from passive exposure.
These proposals will be the basis of a legally viable European Citizens'
Initiative. This initiative aims to open the debate in the Council of Europe
the European Parliament and Member States of the European Union to create
legislative changes that ensure the implementation of the Precautionary
Principle and health protection in the deployment of wireless technology and
