Public exposure

Due to a lack of information or the spread of fake news, the deployment of new technology can lead to the general public having questions. It is important to provide objective and transparent information about 5G and its impact on the exposure of the public to waves.

The role of the ANFR

The ANFR makes sure that the limit values for the exposure of the general public to waves is respected and manages the national wave monitoring and measurement system. A National Dialogue Committee has been created within the ANFR by the legislation to exchange with the actors, share information, publish it and favour public trust. The ANFR also participates in the 5G pilots to create checking tools and in the consultation on the exposure of the general public created by 5G.  

    MONITOR, MEASURE

                                       

     

    Monitor the exposure limit values for the general public to waves.

    Manage the national exposure measurement system.

    DIALOGUE

                                  

    The National Dialogue Committee implemented within the ANFR to exchange and share information on the new 5G technology. 

    In the field, the ANFR accompanies local authorities by providing its expertise. View the map of 5G pilots monitored by the ANFR

    PUBLISH

                                   

    Field studies and the results of wave exposure measurements are transparently published on the ANFR web site. 

    Over 45,000 measurements are published on CARTORADIO

The ANFR supports the first mobile phone operator pilot 5G deployments in the 3.5 GHz band and works with all the players to characterise 5G networks in terms of exposure of the general public to electromagnetic waves. In the future, the new 5G bands (for example 26 GHz), will have higher frequencies in the millimetric bands, corresponding to the frequency bands of which the wavelength is in the order of a millimetre. 

In its millimetric bands, exposure remains local to the skin surface and the exposure is no longer measured using the specific absorption rate (SAR) but by the surface power density (SPD).

ANFR is publishing a report on the exposure values measured during several 5G pilot deployments conducted in France. The results obtained have led the ANFR to propose a new wave exposure measurement indicator taking into account the specific characteristics of 5G networks. 

This report is part of a general reflection on the assessment of public exposure to electromagnetic waves from 5G networks. The first part was a general presentation of 5G from an exposure point of view. This second part covers several representative pilot deployments conducted in France to assess in the field exposure produced by 5G steered beam antennas in the 3.5 GHz band.
