2nd Announcement

Registration is now open - Full programm available online !!!

Risk Assessment and Terminology in NIR
ICNIRP/WHO International Workshop
23-24 November 2009, Salzburg, Austria

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) will be holding an International Workshop ''Evaluation and Communication of Scientific Evidence and Uncertainty - Towards a Consistent Terminology in Non-Ionizing Radiation'' on 23-24 November 2009 at the Old Library at the University of Salzburg, Hofstallgasse 2-4, Austria. The Workshop is co-sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Background

National and international health related agencies use different systematic approaches for evaluating scientific evidence on which to base health policy. These processes provide a structure that formalizes quantitative and qualitative assessments of the risk to health and prescribe specific language to communicate the strength of evidence. Applying quantitative evidence review to the effects of non-ionizing radiation on human health is under discussion. Another challenge is to provide an accurate translation of scientific information and terminology for the media, policy-makers and the general public.

The workshop will allow a discussion of quantitative and qualitative classification of risk and of levels of uncertainty and variability based on the scientific evidence at hand. Examples from different national and international bodies and disciplines will be presented. Expected outcomes are the development of both a simple classification approach and a narrative evaluation that can describe the strength of evidence and the relevance of different types of studies (epidemiological, animal and human laboratory).

In the special session organized by the research network on the Implications of Biomedicine for the Assessment of Human Health Risks (IMBA) the focus will be on emerging genomic technologies, i.e. the use of micro-arrays in cancer risk assessment. The interpretation of these arrays amplify the already existing risk characterization and communication problems.

Objectives

- To develop a shared vision among agencies on the approach to evaluating scientific evidence for health risks
from NIR exposure;

- To decide on a consistent terminology in NIR;

- To discuss ways of describing the scientific terminology in lay-person's terms to ensure the best, accurate,
evidence based information for the public.
