Swiss Parliamentary Commission calls for relaxing mobile radiation limits

Wednesday 31 January 2018 | 15:27 CET | News
The Swiss Parliament's Commission for Transport and Telecommunications has called for the Federal Council to review the regulation on non-ionising radiation (NISV), in order to prevent a collapse of mobile networks and to address the challenges of digitisation. The drastic increase in the use of the existing mobile infrastructure in recent years and the difficult expansion of new facilities make determined action by the Federal Council unavoidable. The Parliamentary Commission called for a relaxation of the strict NISV regulation, while still remaining in line with international standards.
