Parliamentary questions
3 July 2015
E-010810-15
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Estefanía Torres Martínez (GUE/NGL) , Pablo Iglesias (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Full recognition of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) in Europe
 Answer(s) 

This year once again, International Day against Electromagnetic Pollution was marked on 24 June. Both the European Parliament (in 2008 and 2009) and other bodies — such as the European Environment Agency (from 2007 to the present) and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (in 2015) — have drawn up a series of resolutions on this topic.

In the European Economic and Social Committee, however, lobbies have boycotted an opinion based on a precautionary approach that sought to protect people’s health and that contained demands and warnings similar to those previously set out in the above resolutions, with a basic recognition of the rights of electrosensitive people. This matter is currently being investigated by the Ombudsman in relation to a possible conflict of interest. At the same time, scientific committees such as the SCENIHR clearly lack independence and neutrality.

Will the Commission take steps to end this boycott and find a solution to the lack of protection and vulnerability of children in the face of the growing use of wireless technologies in schools?
