Workshop on the Implementation of Mandatory Standard for Deployment of Radiocommunication Infrastructure Technical and Administrative Standard for Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Safety
Port Louis: The Information and Communication Technologies Authority, (ICTA), is organising a workshop on the Implementation of the Deployment of Radiocommunication Infrastructure Technical and Administrative Standard for Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Safety.
The technical and administrative standard is mandatory (ICTA/STD/201/01).
It comes into effect on 23 September 2011.
The standard is the principal instrument of the Authority to reconcile the needs of telecommunication licensees to install radiocommunication infrastructure to provide services at specified Quality of Service (QoS) standards to the public, with the concerns over potential health and environment issues associated with EMF safety.
The workshop forms part of the Authority’s continued engagement with stakeholders, particularly ICT consumers to find solutions to the issues raised over radiocommunication infrastructure and EMF safety and to implement the mandatory standard.
The three-day workshop will be held as from Monday 25 to Wednesday 27 July 2011 at the Le Sirius Conference Room, Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel, Port Louis. The workshop opens on Monday at 9.30 am. Guests are kindly requested to be seated by 9.15.
Dr Vikass Monebhurrun, Associate Professor with over ten years’ experience in EMF and EMF-related research from France’s prestigious institute for engineers in the field of information sciences and energy, L’Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité, (Supélec) and
and Ms Debbie Wills from Telstra Corporation Limited will be among the experts and resource persons.
