Antennas Licensing: The issuance of the antenna construction permit requires the consent of the CAA and the HAF regarding aviation safety, of the GAEC regarding the adherence to the limits of electromagnetic radiation and the environmental licensing of the antenna construction, which, depending on the type and size of the project, consists in the granting of Approval of Environmental Terms (EPO) or - in the majority of cases of mobile base stations - in the submission of the Declaration of Submission to Standard Environmental Commitments.

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 Antenna Construction Information Portal (keraies.eett.gr) is a pilot web application developed by EETT that provides citizens with the opportunity to be informed about the construction of antennas that are licensed or registered with EETT. 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:

Furthermore, another dimension of civil protection from EMF can be found in Directive 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment - the 'RED Directive' -  for the application of which in the Greek market EETT is the responsible body. One of the essential requirements of the RED Directive is the protection from electromagnetic fields emitted from radio equipment devices including handheld mobile and fixed stations.

Market surveillance activities under this responsibility include checks and controls for radio equipment available in the market. These controls are also addressing the protection of health and specifically the exposure to EMF from all radio devices (including mobile phones and base stations) available in the market.
