The Croatia Ministry of Health Recommends Reducing Cell Phone Radiation
The Ministry of Health of Croatia maintains a dedicated web page, and communicates with concerned citizens on the issue of electromagnetic fields and cell phone radiation. EHT translated a video on cell phone radiation the Ministry issued. Note: After the Croatia video excerpt, EHT added more tips to reduce exposure.
Two downloadable brochures for the public were published in 2016: a descriptive brochure explaining the EMF protection principles, and a Q&A brochure.
- Brochure: Croatia: Non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation The most common questions and answers
- Croatia: EMF Protection Principles (PDF on EHT website)
- Regulations in the field of protection against electromagnetic fields in the Republic of Croatia
- Regular monitoring of EMF from antennas: The owner of the electromagnetic field source is obliged to provide a new measurement of the electromagnetic field levels every three years and submit the results to the Ministry of Health.
The Ministry has a webpage hosting an educational video to educate families on how to reduce radiation from the cell phone.
