ICNIRP guidelines
ICNIRP is the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. It is a body of independent scientific experts consisting of a main commission of 14 members, 4 scientific standing committees covering epidemiology, biology, dosimetry and optical radiation and a number of consulting experts.
  • EMF guidelines – 1998
    Guidelines for Limiting Exposure to Time-Varying Electric, Magnetic, and Electromagnetic Fields (up to 300 GHz). The EMF guidelines published in 1998 are now being revised and replaced step by step. Still valid for frequencies above 100 kHz.
  • LF Guidelines – 2010
    Guidelines for Limiting Exposure to Time-Varying Electric and Magnetic Fields for low frequencies (1 Hz - 100 kHz). Replaces EMF guidelines (1998) for frequencies up to 100 kHz.
  • Fact sheet on LF Guidelines– 2010
  • Guidelines on Static Fields - 2009
    Guidelines on Limits of Exposure to Static Magnetic Fields.
  • Fact Sheet on Static Fields – 2009
  • ICNIRP statement - 2003
    Guidance on determining compliance of exposure to pulsed fields and complex non-sinusoidal waveforms below 100 kHz.
