1 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27July 2010 ITU-T SG5 activities on EMF Ahmed ZEDDAM Ahmed ZEDDAM, ITU-T SG5 Chair France Telecom Orange ITU-T Workshop on Delivering Good Quality Telecommunication Service in a Safe Environment in Africa (Nairobi, Kenya, 26 July – 27 July 2010 )

2 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Outline Structure and Mandate of ITU-T/SG5 Objective of ITU-T/SG5 Q3/5 Q3/5 : Human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) due to radio systems and mobile equipment Main tasks & Responsibility Recommendations under the scope of Q3 Resolution 72 of ITU-T Conclusion

3 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU-T SG5 Environment and climate change WP1/5 Damage prevention and safety WP2/5 Electromagnetic fields: emission, immunity and human exposure Q.14 Terminology WP3/5 ICT and climate change Question 3/5 Human exposure to EMFs Structure of ITU-T SG5 7 Questions 5 Questions

4 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July SG 5 Keywords WP 1/5 Equipment Resistibility Lightning protection Earthing & Bonding Electromagnetic interference from power and traction systems Safety WP 2/5 Human exposure to e.m. fields EMC Emission Immunity Electromagn etic security WP 3/5 ICT & climate change Methodology Power feeding systems Energy efficiency Environmental protection, recycling

5 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July SG 5 Mandate Study Group 5 is responsible for : Studies relating to protection of telecommunication networks and equipment from interference and lightning; Studies relating to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), to safety and to health effects connected with electromagnetic fields produced by telecommunication installations and devices, including cellular phones ; Studies on the existing copper network outside plant and related indoor installations. Studies on ICT & Climate Change

6 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Meaning of the Mandate: Example damages or disturbances injury to people health effect Study Electromagnetic Phenomena which can cause damages or disturbances to telecommunication installation or injury to people (telecommunication personnel and service users) or health effect to population MDF Switching equipment Subscriber premises Remote site Telecommunication centre Lightning Power line Telecom line Mobile phone Radio station ICT Impact on environment

7 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Objective Study environmental issues to define PROTECTIVE MEASURES, INSTALLATION TECHNIQUES & METHODOLOGIES by means : Recommendations: K & L-series DirectivesHandbooks Lightning Handbook, Earthing Handbook Measuring Handbook, Mitigation Handbook Handbooks on ICT & Climate change Recommendations Recommendations for limiting the RISK of : Damages to telecommunication installation and equipment Disturbances to and from telecommunication systems Injury to people : Injury to people : Safety & Human exposure to e.m. fields (EMF) produced by telecommunication installations (Q3/5) Recommendations on Recommendations on : Methodologies for evaluating the ICT effects on climate change, Energy efficiency of the power feeding systems Methodologies to reduce environmental effects such as recycling

8 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU-T SG5 Question 3/5 "Human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) due to radio systems and mobile equipment" Fryderyk Lewicki Rapporteur: Fryderyk Lewicki (Poland) Tariq Alamri Associate Rapporteur: Tariq Alamri (Saudi Arabia)

9 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Main tasks & Responsibility Assignment of the exposure limits considered as safe for people - Medical bodies responsibility: WHO, ICNIRP, National medical authorities Standards for evaluation and measurement of exposure level - IEC, CENELEC, COST 281, National standardization committees Best practice, Implementation and guidance on telecommunication installations - ITU-T SG5

10 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU-T Study Group 5 Question 3/5 : Human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) due to radio systems and mobile equipment Guidance for the telecommunication sector Collaboration with other standardization bodies (IEC, CENELEC, WHO) in order to avoid duplication of work Support to developing countries – Resolution 72

11 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July History of Study on EMF in ITU-T New Question on EMF has started on 1996 and studying for 3 periods (12 years). Three Recommendations have established and revised since then : K.52: Guidance on complying with limits for human exposure to electromagnetic fields K.61: Guidance on measurement and numerical prediction of electromagnetic fields for compliance with human exposure limits for telecommunication installations K.70: Mitigation techniques to limit human exposure to EMFs in the vicinity of radiocommunication stations

12 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU-T Recommendations related to human exposure to E.M. fields ITU-T Recommendations K.52 and K.61 guidance on complying with safety limits for human exposure to e.m. fields from a telecommunication installation or mobile handset adopts a step-by-step approach to determine an exceedance zone (within which field exceeds reference limits) compliance achieved if exceedance zone is not accessible to personnel under normal conditions ITU-T Recommendation K.70 Mitigation Techniques to limit human exposure to EM fields in the vicinity of radiocommunication stations Software provided that implements methodology

13 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU Recommendations related to human exposure Assessment of hazard and need for precautionary measures E.M Radiation from a telecommunication installation E.M. Safety Limits Recommendation ITU-R BS.1698 ITU-T Recommendation K.52 ITU-T Recommendation K.61 ITU-T Recommendation K.70 Mitigation Techniques to limit human exposure

14 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July WTSA 08: Resolution 72 " Measurement concerns related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields" o Recognizing that some publications about EMF effects on health create doubt among the population, in particular in developing countries o Resolves to invite ITU-T, in particular Study Group 5, to expand and accelerate its work and support to assist developing countries o Invites to contribute actively to the work of Study Group 5 in providing relevant and timely information in order to assist developing countries in providing information and addressing measurement concerns related to RF exposure

15 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July WTSA 08: Resolution 72 " Measurement concerns related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields" Recommendation ITU-T K.guide will be written with Resolution 72 taken into account with big parts concerning EMF measurement with many examples with comparison measurement/calculation Examples of action in accordance with Resolution 72 Technical session on EMF during SG5 meeting (May 2009) Workshop on EMF

16 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July ITU-T Recommendation K.guide "Guidance on how to manage human exposure to EMFs" Guidance on how to handle the problem of the human exposure assessment in order to help the user to apply existing standards Procedures how to evaluate exposure by measurement by calculations Procedures how to show the compliance with exposure limits This Recommendation will be written in the possibly simple way and will be easy to understand

17 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Conclusion (1) Concerning human exposure to EMF: supports developing countries ( ITU-T SG5 takes part in standardization by preparing Recommendations, which give appropriate guidance for administrations and telecommunication operators and supports developing countries (Resolution 72) there is no duplication of work ITU-T activity is complementary to the works carried out in other international standardization bodies involved in this subject - there is no duplication of work

18 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Conclusion (2) All the SG5 activities are reported in our web site: /studygroups/com05/index.asp free of charge The vast majority of all Recommendations are available in electronic (PDF) form free of charge For a complete picture of SG 5 Publications: Guide to the use of ITU-TSG5 publications telecommunications equipment designers operators developing countries The document is aimed at telecommunications equipment designers and operators and will also be very helpful for users in developing countries

19 Nairobi, Kenya, 26 – 27 July Thank you
