Expert Review: Evidence on Wind Farms and Human Health

The NHMRC Draft Information Paper: Evidence on Wind Farms and Human Health was critically appraised by six Australian and international reviewers whose expertise covered:

The expert reviewers were asked to consider whether the rationale applied in examining the evidence was clearly explained and whether the evidence was accurately translated into the draft Information Paper. They were also asked to evaluate the appropriateness of the conclusions based on their understanding of the latest evidence in their specific area of expertise.

The reviewers raised a number of issues, most of which related to wind farm noise. The Wind Farms and Human Health Reference Group gave due regard to expert review comments and, over several meetings, carefully considered issues that were raised. A summary of the Reference Group’s responses to the key issues raised by the expert reviewers can be found in the Expert review: Summary of key issues on the NHMRC website at: www.nhmrc.gov.au/guidelines-publications/eh57.

This document contains the full comments provided by each expert reviewer, published with their consent.
