The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change moderates and ensures the safety of non-ionizing radiation measurements

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change has confirmed that the results of the first national report on non-ionizing radiation measurements, specifically electromagnetic frequencies, have shown that the measurement rates for the current year are moderate, safe, and comfortably below global natural averages.

The Radiation Protection Department pointed out that the first national report on non-ionizing radiation measurements is the first of its kind in the country. A unit specializing in the analysis of non-ionizing radiation frequencies monitors and observes electromagnetic radiation in real-time to obtain high-precision data on non-ionizing radiation levels. They emphasized that these data are collected, quality-checked, and reviewed by experts before the report is issued.

The department further explained that the unit provides early warnings in case there is any increase in non-ionizing radiation levels, ensuring a prompt response from specialized teams within the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. They noted that the report predicts non-ionizing radiation levels and monitors them around the clock throughout the year.

They mentioned that the national report provides a detailed overview of the environmental status of non-ionizing radiation levels, which are measured by monitoring stations spread across most areas of the country. These stations record the highest and lowest energy levels in each region and then calculate the average energy level, which can vary from one area to another.

The unit responsible for analyzing non-ionizing radiation frequencies serves scientific and research studies on radiation and its long-term effects. This is achieved through the creation of a comprehensive database that continuously provides accurate and reliable information using devices distributed throughout the country and connected to the ministry’s national network.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is making significant efforts to protect Qatar’s environment and work towards the sustainability of its resources. These efforts are part of the environmental strategy for climate change, which is included in Qatar’s Vision 2030.
