9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 11Colombia/1 Background The continuing evolution of technologies - need forinstallation of antennas and their associated elements,especially in densely populated areas. Particularly rapid growth of mobile subscribers, new andmore diverse services. This growth requires a network support to ensure coverageof the territory on the one hand and the quality of serviceon the other, which means in both cases the need to installincreasingly antennas. In many cases, companies were limited to fulfill itsobligations under licenses granted by the NationalGovernment generally linked to coverage and quality ofservice, avoiding compliance with guidelines regarding theenvironment, urban planning, protection of historical andcultural heritage Companies in compliance with the obligations of thenational license installed their networks almost exclusivelyfrom the perspective of technical and economic efficiency(low cost).
9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 12Colombia/2 Main topics discussed in of the report Health Protection and regulations Colombia The political reality of the Municipalities Types of barriers The mother of all barriers The international experience Reduce the causes which are originating the popularapprehension Show in understandable way what can be the radiationcontrolled to protect health Dynamic Radiation Maps Continuous Monitoring Systems International recommendations Management of Social Acceptance
9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 13Colombia/3 Recommendations/1 Keep Colombian legislation in line with World HealthOrganisation and ICNIRP. Pilot test for a Continuous Monitoring System ofNon-Ionized Radiation 9NIR) and Municipal DynamicMap at street level in the municipalities selected forthe pilot Integrating the Colombian Federation ofMunicipalities or as many municipalities as possibleto a dialogue with ANE to establish foundations for apossible deal.Show explicit tools (Code of Practice, ContinuousMonitoring Systems, Dynamic Radiation Map) Integrate the private sector to the negotiating table.It is important to establish a prior agreement withthe presidents of companies since the agreementsinvolve concessions and eventually cost implicationswhich only presidents can solve.
9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 14Colombia/4 Recommendations/2 Negotiate during the discussions an agreement betweenmunicipalities, companies, and ANE for the installation ofradio systems. Agree and sign during the negotiations a Code of GoodPractice for Installation. Generate Models for Municipal Ordinances, by type ofmunicipality taking into account the Code of Good Practiceand measurement systems described, and as a basis forthe development of municipal regulations Establish in such ordinances the realization of ContinuousMonitoring System of the NIR and Dynamic MunicipalRadiation Map at street level in all municipalities. Set on the basis of pilot Continuous Non-Ionizing RadiationMonitoring Systems as a method of communication on theNIR and health protection Make cooperation agreements with countries that aresolving the problem using these tools.
9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 15Colombia/5 Recommendations/3 Organize an international seminar with members of WHO.ICNIRP, ITU, CITEL, universities, manufacturers, operators,countries showing success stories, etc. Create a Technical Advisory Service to municipalities by theColombian Federation of Municipalities Establish within the Technical Advisory Service an exclusiveweb page related to Non-Ionizing Radiation and its control Create from the Ministry a Monitoring Committee for theinstallation of the antennae and the issues associated withNRI, and this committee will involve all nationalgovernment agencies related to the problem (Health,Environment, Civil Aviation, Infrastructure etc.),Universities and professional associations Establish in the Monitoring Committee a policy for mediacommunication
9 May 2013 EMF, Turin, Italy 16Colombia/6 Pilot project Select one to three municipalities where pilot test Agree with local political authorities on the working methodfor the realization of a Comprehensive Pilot including e.g.facility agreements, methods, ratings and installation siteselection of monitors. Procurement of equipment and services to carry outcontinuous monitoring system and radiation maps andinstall in the selected municipalities. Initiate a dialogue where all sectors are represented,Ministry, ANE, CRC, Ministry, Municipalities (independentlyof the Federal pilot participants), Companies, Associationsof users, etc., assessing the results of the Pilot. It is suggested, in case of budget constraints reduce thenumber of municipalities to join in the pilot but do thesame with both tools ie: Continuous monitoring andradiation maps as they are complementary tools.
