P-000873/2020/rev.1
Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Ivan Vilibor Sinčić
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Legal basis for the introduction of the next generation of mobile telephony

I should like to put the following questions regarding 5G to the Commission: 

What is the official position of the EU on the Ministerial Declaration ‘Making 5G a success for Europe’, signed on 18 July 2017 in Tallinn, which is being interpreted in Croatia as an obligation for every Member State to provide 5G network coverage for at least one city in that country? Can such an obligation be imposed on cities and local self-government units without the consent of local authorities and citizens?

Is there any EU directive providing for an obligation to introduce 5G technology in 2020, i.e., full coverage of at least one city in each Member State?

What is the EU's position on the appeal sent by 252 scientists from 43 countries to the UN and the WHO, which calls for stricter radiation protection standards and proposes the suspension of the implementation of 5G technology until possible health and environmental effects are examined?
