EHT Takes Historic Legal Action Against the FCC
Appeal filed after the FCC refuses to update their 24 year old wireless radiation limits.
Washington, DC – A group of scientists, consumer health nonprofits, and citizens filed a historic legal action against the FCC for its refusal to update its 24-year-old cell phone and wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation guidelines. EHT’s legal petition contends the FCC’s December action is “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion” and “not in accordance with the law” as the FCC has violated the Administrative Procedure Act and the National Environmental Policy Act by failing to adequately review the hundreds of relevant scientific submissions finding harmful effects from wireless technologies. The FCC’s December action gives the green light to the rollout of 5G technology and small cell densification in the USA."
