Dear Association BIOGEN,

June 19, 2012 Moscow, Russia

Recommendations Wi-Fi,
of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection of the necessity to regulate strictly the use of Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools Mobile cellular communication is getting more popular among children of different ages.
Children excel adult population in the mobile phone calls use. At the same time, there is a daily brain exposure of EMF RF. In addition, all children are constantly exposed of EMF RF from base stations. The problem of the children’s health maintenance in the development of wireless communications was set up as priority by World Health Organization.
Electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi creates an additional burden for the child brain, whose body is in a state of development and the formation of mental activity. During this period,
children are most susceptible to adverse environmental factors (WHO, publication number 3, April 2003).
It is necessary to note that the existing standards have been developed, without consideration of this additional exposure of EMF.

RussCNIRP consider necessary:
1. Ministry of Health and other organizations, responsible for the population safety (including children), should pay attention to the regulation of Wi-Fi use in kindergartens and schools; to the strengthening of sanitary control of the Wi-Fi using and to the development of an appropriate regulatory framework.
2. To recommend the usage of wired networks in schools and educational institutions, rather than a network using wireless broadband systems, including Wi-Fi.

Chairman of RussCNIRP,

Professor Yury G. Grigoriev



More Medical Associations, medical doctors and scientists, many of whom work on the biological effects of wireless technologies, have expressed their concerns about the safety of wireless devices for schools. They are asking for wired information and communication technologies to be used in order to safeguard children and young people, protect and promote healthy development and maximise learning and achievement. These experts do not agree with the health protection agencies which currently support or allow the use of microwave, radiofrequency-emitting technologies by children and young people in schools. Other authorities have also called for the protection of children from wireless technologies. – Council of Europe: Mobile phone use by pupils in schools to be strictly regulated and wired internet connections to be preferred (Resolution 1815, 2011). – World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency radiation as a possible human carcinogen, class 2B (2011). – UK Trades Union Congress (TUC): Caution should be taken to prevent exposure to Class 2B carcinogens in the workplace.

European Environment Agency: All reasonable measures to be taken to reduce exposures to electromagnetic fields, especially radiofrequencies from mobile phones and particularly – the exposures to children and young adults. Current exposure limits to be reconsidered.

– International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS): Strongly advise limited use of cell phones, and other similar devices, by young children and teenagers. – Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection have recommended the use of wired networks in schools and educational institutions, rather than wireless broadband systems, including Wi-Fi “It is our professional obligation not to damage the children’s health by inactivity”.

– German Government and Israeli Parliament recommended wired computer networks for schools or workplaces 10,11

– Several countries have advised children and young people to limit their use of mobile/smart/cell phones This document serves to inform schools, Governing Bodies, Academy Trusts, School Boards, Education Authorities, teachers and parents of the professional, medical and scientific concerns about children using wireless technologies in schools.

The information can be used to implement safe school policies, practices and guidance in order to safeguard the health and development of children and young people and to aid cognitive abilities, learning and achievement. Source:
