Why do other countries have more stringent RFEMR limits?

Sue Grey made this Official Information request to Kris Faafoi

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Sue Grey to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Sue Grey

Dear Kris Faafoi,
Please can you provide information to show:
A) the maximum permitted RFEMR exposure limit in NZ in microwatts/cm2
B) how limit is NZ is justified and considered safe for New Zealanders considering the far stricter limits in many other countries for example:

China 10 microwatts/cm2

Russia 10 microwatts/cm2

Italy 10 microwatts/cm2

France 10 microwatts/cm2

Poland 10 microwatts/cm2

Hungary 10 microwatts/cm2

Switzerland General 9.5 microwatts/cm2

Switzerland Schools and Hospitals 4.25 microwatts/cm2

Belgium 2.4 microwatts/cm2

Bulgaria 2.4 microwatts/cm2

C) any evidence to show New Zealanders including pregnant women, children and foetuses are more resilient to RFEMR than the citizens of the states listed above
D) any information to show remedies and or compensation available for NZers who suffer harm from or attributable in part to RFEMR
E) any information to show what if any insurance cover is available to individual NZers and or to the NZ government for harm from RFEMR
F) information to show the cost of the rollout of fibre optic cable in NZ and the benefits of that for NZers;
G) given the investment in fibre optic cable, why we now need 5G

Thank you and kind regards

Yours faithfully,

Sue Grey

Good afternoon

I refer to your Official Information Act request below.

Parts A and B of your request are to be transferred to the Ministry for the Environment, while parts C, D and E are to be transferred to the Ministry of Health.

This is because the information that has been requested is not held by this office. Section 14(b)(i) of the Official Information Act allows the transfer of any request where the information is not held, but is believed to be held by another department, organisation or Minister of the Crown.

You can expect a response to points F and G from this office in due course.

Kind regards

Matt Greer
