Human EMF exposure guidelines

A number of national and international organizations have formulated guidelines establishing limits for occupational and general public RF EMF exposure up to 300GHz.

 ICNIRP Guidelines

The exposure limits for EMF fields developed by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) - a non-governmental organization in official relations with the WHO, were developed following reviews of all the peer-reviewed scientific literature, including thermal and non-thermal effects. 

The guidelines are based on evaluations of biological effects that have been established to have health consequences. The main conclusion from the WHO reviews is that EMF exposures below the limits recommended in the  ICNIRP International Guidelines do not appear to have any known consequence on health. 

ICNIRP has an ongoing program to monitor scientific research and ensure the human exposure guidelines are up to date.

ICES/IEEE Safety Standards

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a professional association headquartered in New York City that is dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence, and includes the International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) focused on development and maintenance of EMF Safety Standards IEEE C95.1-2005 - Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz.

Note: The ICNIRP and IEEE guidelines are similar, science based and accepted in many countries around the world.
