Factfiles, Position Statements and Briefings

The Institution of Engineering & Technology has drawn upon the expertise of its members to produce a number of factfiles, position statements and briefings on a wide range of topics, including the health effects of mobile phones, nuclear power, colour blindness, RFID, and many more.

These factfiles are designed to provide unbiased information in an informative way for IET members and the general public.
