  • EMFacts Consultancy This Australian site, run by consultant Don Maisch, has a number of factsheets on 50 and 60 Hertz(Hz) Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) from electricity and Radio-frequency/Microwave (RF/MW) Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) from telecommunications. It also has a list of useful links. 
  • Victorian Department of Human Services Environment Health Information Radiation webpage - the website has information on legislation, the radiation safety program, and more.
  • Powerwatch - this UK organisation is independent ofgovernment and industry, whose charter is to gather information on EMFs from around the world and make it available for non-technical people.
  • Microwave News: a comprehensive sourceof the latest news and opinion on low- and high-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
  • Swedish Association for the Electro-Hyper-Sensitive - a very comprehensive site for information on the condition of Electrosensitivity as well as links to other sites (in English)
  • The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency - note however, that this organisation is the official Australian Government agency and tends take the line that there insufficient evidence of negative health effects of much of the EMR spectrum.
  • EMR Australia - a commercial site which provides information, services and  products
