Standards for EM exposure

Product exposure

To achieve electromagnetic compatibility, any product, including an electric vehicle, must satisfy requirements for both electromagnetic emissions and electromagnetic immunitye performance.

Human exposure

Possible harmful effects of human exposure to electromagnetic fields have been considered by a number of international organisations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Commission for Non-ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

Guidelines and directives

  • ICNIRP (the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) has published several guidelines for limiting human exposure to electromagnetic fields.
  • EU directives concerning this are based on  the ICNIRP guidelines.
  • The WHO (the World Health Organization) position on human exposure to EMF is to comply with the ICNIRP guidelines.
