Dates Confirmed for Annual Mobile Mast Audits in Jersey

Sep 22, 2021

Tests for emissions levels from mobile phone masts in Jersey to make sure they comply with internationally agreed safe levels, will be undertaken at the beginning of next month. 

The Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority (The Authority) conducts an annual review in line with its published prioritisation principles, and has commissioned specialist independent engineers to carry out the work. 

Specialists from Freshwave will be in the Island on 1st and 2nd of October to evaluate predetermined sites in both urban and rural areas. 

Standards are laid down by the International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). ICNIRP emission standards are recognised by the World Health Organisation and are used within the EU and other regions as a benchmark against which to measure the safety of radio-frequency emissions. 

The audit also examines safety processes and procedures to ensure compliance with local health and safety legislation. The results of the audit, which should be available in November, will be published at and will be available in hard copy on request.
