BERENIS - Swiss expert group on electromagnetic fields and non-ionising radiation (BERENIS)

The interdisciplinary Swiss expert group on electromagnetic fields and non-ionising radiation (BERENIS) has commenced its work in 2014. The experts have been nominated by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment. The aim of BERENIS is to continuously assess newly published human experimental and epidemiological studies, in vivo and in vitro studies, as well as exposure and dosimetry studies. Based on defined criteria, BERENIS identifies the most relevant publications regarding health risk assessment and new scientific data. The evaluations are published in quarterly newsletters in English, German and French. This approach provides an innovative way of regularly informing the public and governmental authorities on new scientific insights related to health effects of non-ionising radiation.
