Composition: Project Group (PG) consists of members of the Commission and the SEG when additional expertise is needed. PG members are selected by the Commission members.

Duties: Project Groups are set up to assist ICNIRP in performing its projects as per its work plan. These entities are dedicated to fulfill a specific work plan task such as the preparation of the ICNIRP draft documents or the organization of a workshop. Upon completion of the task assigned, the PG is dissolved.

Laser Pointers
ICNIRP PG on the revision of the ICNIRP Laser Pointers Statement (2000)

Task: Revising the ICNIRP Statement on Laser Pointers (Health Phys 77(2):218-220:1990)

MembershipMasami KojimaJohn O’Hagan, Karl Schulmeister, David Sliney, Bruce Stuck

Emilie van Deventer (WHO)

On hold until further notice

Chronic UV Exposure
ICNIRP PG on Long-term Effects of Chronic UV Exposure

Task: To review current evidence for long-term effects of chronic UV exposure and update guidance.

Membership: Nigel Cridland (Chair), Ken Karipidis, Rachel Neale, Tsutomu Okuno, David Sliney

Status: Exploratory

LF Guidelines (≤10 MHz)
ICNIRP PG on Low Frequency Guidelines (≤10 MHz)

Environment and EMFs
ICNIRP PG on Environmental EMF Protection

Task: Draft a statement on environmental effects of EMFs on the basis of qualitatively reliable scientific papers. And, if possible, to analyse whether the current human exposure guidelines are also sufficiently protective for plants and animals in their natural environment.

Membership: Eric van Rongen (Chair), Rodney Croft, Ken Karipidis, Guglielmo d’Inzeo, Blanka Pophof, Martin Röösli, Andrew Wood

Status: Exploratory

RF Knowledge Gaps
ICNIRP PG on "knowledge gaps relevant to the ICNIRP Guidelines for limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz)"

Task: Draft a research agenda in regard to the knowledge gaps identified during the development of the RF guidelines as relevant to protection guidance.

Membership: Carmela Marino (Chair), Rodney Croft, Akimasa Hirata, Guglielmo d’Inzeo, Gunnhild Oftedal, Martin Roosli, Eric van Rongen, Soichi Watanabe, (tba) 

Status: Active

last update: November 2021

Laser Guidelines
ICNIRP PG on the revision of the Laser Guidelines (2013)

Task: Revise the ICNIRP Laser Guidelines (Health Phys 105(3):271-295:2013).

MembershipNigel Cridland, Akimasa Hirata, Maya MizunoJohn O’Hagan, Karl Schulmeister, David Sliney, Bruce Stuck.

On hold until further notice

LF Dosimetry Review
ICNIRP PG on LF Dosimetry Review

Task: Review dosimetry studies, which are related to LF guidelines (typically < 10 MHz).

Membership: Akimasa Hirata (Chair), Seungyoung Ahn, Francesca Apollonio, Yinliang Diao, Luca Giaccone, Jens Kuhne, Ilkka Laakso, Micaela Liberti, Sachiko Kodera, Kanako Wake, Tongning Wu

Status: Onhold

last update: November 2021

ICNIRP PG on "Ultrasound scoping"

Task: Investigate the current data on airborne ultrasound exposure and prepare a recommendation on the development of research agendae and guidance.

Membership: Ken Karipidis (Chair), Jacques Abramowicz, Akimasa Hirata, Jens KuhneTimothy LeightonGunnhild Oftedal, Jan RadoszMartin Roosli

Status: Statement published in pre-print at Health Physics. More information here.
