Support needed research into

possible biological effects of RF

of the type emitted by wireless


Design wireless phones in a way

that minimizes any RF exposure to

the user that is not necessary for

device function; and

Cooperate in providing users of

wireless phones with the best

possible information on possible

effects of wireless phone use on

human health.

The FDA belongs to an interagency

working group of the federal

agencies that have responsibility

for different aspects of RF safety to

ensure coordinated efforts at the

federal level. The following agencies

belong to this working group:

National Institute for Occupational

Safety and Health

Environmental Protection Agency

Occupational Safety and Health

Administration (Administración de

la seguridad y salud laborales)

Occupational Safety and Health


National Telecommunications and

Information Administration

The National Institutes of Health

participates in some interagency

working group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory

responsibilities for wireless phones

with the Federal Communications

Commission (FCC). All phones that are

sold in the United States must comply

with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF

exposure. The FCC relies on the FDA

and other health agencies for safety

questions about wireless phones.
The FCC also regulates the base

stations that the wireless phone

networks rely upon. While these base

stations operate at higher power than

do the wireless phones themselves,

the RF exposures that people get

from these base stations are typically

thousands of times lower than those

they can get from wireless phones.
