USA: After the FCC released its Notice of Inquiry (NoI) on Radio Frequency (RF), CTIA VP of Public Affairs, John Walls issued the following statement:
"CTIA welcomes the FCC's focus on cellphones and health effects. In establishing RF emission requirements for wireless devices, the FCC has always been guided by science and the evidence produced by impartial health organizations and the scientific community.
"As the GAO stated in its July 2012 report, 'Scientific research to date has not demonstrated adverse human health effects of exposure to radio-frequency energy from mobile phone use, but research is ongoing that may increase understanding of any possible effects.' The US Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health have reached similar conclusions about the state of the science.
"As this review proceeds, it is important to recall the FCC's Director of Communications has said, 'We are confident that, as set, the [FCC's] emissions guidelines for devices pose no harm to consumers.'"
