Mobile Phone Base Station Information

Communications Alliance is an industry representative body. We are not a provider of telecommunications services and as such we do not handle specific community inquiries. See appropriate Carrier contacts below.


The Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Industry Code

The aim of the Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Industry Code (C564:2018) is to help deal with the concerns of the community about the risks of exposure from radiofrequency electromagnetic energy (RF EME) by allowing the community and councils to have a greater participation in decisions made by Carriers.

Predicted EME levels from base stations are available in reports on the radio frequency national site archive online database www.rfnsa.com.au

To find the predicted EME levels from a base station about which you have been recently notified, see the Carrier’s notification letter, contact the Carrier directly or use the link above.

The relevant base station address will be on the notification letter you received or can be found by contacting the Carrier directly.  Carriers can also calculate EME levels at your home, school or workplace on request.
