ICNIRP Workshop to be held at Wollongong University

ICNIRP Workshop to be held at Wollongong University

Perhaps it is somewhat ironic that it was through the University of Wollongong where I wrote my 2010 PhD thesis; The Procrustean Approach: Setting exposure standards for telecommunications frequency electromagnetic radiation. Chapters 4 and 5 examined the limitations of ICNIRP’s blinkered understanding of the science. Now 4 years later we see the University hosting an ICNIRP conference where ICNIRP’s Procrustean Approach to all things RF will be regurgitated for the attendees. Expect nothing new except for some finely crafted PR spin to maintain the status quo.


ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection), ACEBR (Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research) and ARPANSA (Australian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Agency) are jointly organizing the Workshop on Radiofrequency Field Health Effects & Standards, 11 November 2014. It is hosted by the University of Wollongong, Australia (Innovation Campus, Building 230, Level 2, Squires Way, Fairy Meadow, NSW 2519).

The aim is to discuss the latest evidence of health consequences from exposure to radiofrequency (RF) fields, and their relationship to ICNIRP’s current updating of the HF guidelines.
