ANSES Opinion regarding the electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF)
Amid much controversy, both in the scientific community and in public debates, ANSES decided to
give due attention
environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF) – the two expressions
referring to the same condition – through a specific, in-depth expert appraisal.
As a reminder, in the
expert appraisal report dedicated to the health effects of radiofrequencies published by AFSSET in
2009, a separate section had been devoted to EHS. However, the investigation of this topic was
intentionally deferred during the update of the expert appraisal on radiofrequencies published by
ANSES in 2013 (internal request of 14 June 2011).
The group of experts had considered that the
issue of EHS required the collection of additional data as well as due attention through a specific
collective expertise appraisal, now described in this Opinion.
