April 2, 2009 - European Parliament Resolution of 2 April 2009 on health concerns associated with electromagnetic fields. The report was adopted with 559 votes in favor, 22 against and 8 abstentions.

The placement of antennas, mobile phone masts and high-voltage power lines should be negotiated between industry actors, public authorities and residents' associations in order to minimize health risks and legal action cases. This will also ensure that EMF-transmitting devices are kept clear of schools, crèches, retirement homes and health care institutions. In addition to this, the House recommends that mobile telephone operators should negotiate to share infrastructure in order to reduce "the exposure of the public to EMFs."
Aggressive marketing campaigns by telephone operators, including "the sale of mobile phones designed solely for children or free call time packages aimed at teenagers" are also condemned by MEPs.

September 4, 2008 - European Parliament Recommends Stricter Safety Limits for Cell Phones and Electromagnetic Fields.   See paragraph J and Recommendations 15, 17, 21, 22, 23, 34 and 35.

April 2008 – Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP) Recommendation to Limit Children’s Use of Cell Phones.

The German Federal Government (Bundesregierung) recommends, in general, keeping the personal radiation exposure from high frequency electromagnetic fields as low as possible, that is to say, i.e. to prefer conventional wired connections, if the use of wireless-supported solutions can be avoided.

This document contains the response to an inquiry put forth by members of the Germany parliament entitled: “Radiation exposure due to wireless Internet-Networks.” The response comes in the name of the German Federal Government (Bundesregierung) conveyed with a letter from the German Federal Ministries for the Environment, Nature Protection, and Reactor Safety (Bundesministeriums für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit.)
