The goal of this project was a focus on measurement and analysis of non-ionizing radiation emission sources and public areas, and also for operations of two sensitive areas’ environmental field strength’s 24-hour measurement and analysis. The results will then provide references for developing future strategic management. On the other hand, it will convey correct concepts of non-ionizing radiation through public workshops and training sessions for the Environmental Protection Bureau (EPB).
In terms of non-ionizing radiation, emission sources measurement had been conducted on 54 sites, up to December 26th. The management information system developed specifically for this project was able to store all measurement data into the database for future reference and usage, and to use such information to enrich geographic information systems for providing the public with a convenient way of inquiry.
In terms of non-ionizing radiation reports and messages, 4 international research reports as well as 22 articles of domestic and foreign news collected during the year gradually were made public to a web site about non-ionizing radiation control. Also the web site was regularly maintained and updated to provide the latest and correct information.
This year the Environmental Protection Administration Executive Yuan, R.O.C. (EPA) had planned “Non-ionizing radiation detection declaration data sharing mechanism” for Detection operators and “Electromagnetic wave knowledge exchange mechanism” for people. After review by the EPA, it also was re-examined by three invited experts and scholars in October and November. Lastly, this project had held 4 public workshops and 1 training session for EPB. It played a vital role in promoting correct concepts to village heads, village directors, people, and gave them an opportunity to participate in the discussion regarding non-ionizing radiation subjects.
To support the EPA gathering advice of subjects regarding non-ionizing radiation from, experts represented different domains, and provided them with a platform for exchanging information as well as opinions. This project held four related conferences, and gathered, analyzed, presented precaution measurements of other countries in the meantime which helped draft and establish the long-term exposure precaution measurement principles of new installation non-ionizing radiation emission source in sensitive areas in Taiwan.
