Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and RF Radiation Safety Limits

The EMRadiation Policy Institute

May 17, 2013 — The EPA was created by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). 
(NEPA) 42 U.S.C. §4321 et seq. (1969). NEPA's basic policy is to assure that all branches of government give proper consideration to the environment prior to undertaking any major federal action that may have a significant environmental impact.

Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970 provides EPA with a broad mandate to protect the environment from radiation - including non-ionizing radiation, i.e., RF radiation (42 U.S.C. 2021(h)): "The [EPA] Administrator shall advise the President with respect to radiation matters, directly or indirectly affecting health, including guidance for all Federal agencies in the formulation of radiation standards and in the establishment and execution of programs of cooperation with the states."
