Court orders FCC to reconsider RF radiation limits on mobile devices

Tuesday 17 August 2021 | 08:50 CET | News
A US court has ordered the FCC to reconsider its limits on non-ionising radio frequency radiation from mobile phone equipment. The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia found the regulator violated the Administrative Procedure Act and failed to respond to comments on potential environmental harm in its decision in 2019 to uphold the previous limits. The case was brought by the non-profit group Environmental Health Trust, which has called for stricter limits in order to protect human health and the environment.
