IEC standards

IEC Standards are developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission. The IEC is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, founded in 1906. The IEC's members are National Committees, and they appoint experts and delegates coming from industry, government bodies, associations and academia to participate in the technical and conformity assessment work of the IEC.

IEC Technical Committee 106 is responsible for preparing international standards on measurement and calculation methods to assess human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields.

A list of the relevant IEC standards is available from the IEC TC106 web site.

Note: The IEC and ICNIRP have agreed on the sharing of responsibilities for EMF standards. EMF exposure limits guidelines are developed by ICNIRP and EMF exposure assessment standards developed by IEC.
