The issuance of the antenna construction permit requires among others, the consent of the Hellenic Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) regarding the adherence to the limits of electromagnetic radiation.

The legislation provides for mandatory compliance with specific limits of electromagnetic emissions for antennas to ensure the safe exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields. Statutory limits in Greece are lower by 30%-40% than the limits defined in the relevant European Council Recommendation.

Informing citizens about health and safety issues from electromagnetic radiation and 5G can mitigate public concerns. In this regard, EETT is publishing online all available information for all licensed antenna constructions. The aim is to increase transparency in the licensing of antenna constructions and the provision of e-government services to citizens. 

An application informing citizens about EMF and measurements results in antennas is also available under the responsibility of GAEC (competent authority for radiation safety) for the mobile phone:

Regarding EMF field measurement, GAEC is performing measurements in areas close to antenna towers and fixed radio stations and publishes the results on its site:
