RF EMF Guidelines 2020

Mar 2020


The ICNIRP Guidelines on Limiting Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields are for the protection of humans exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF) in the range 100 kHz to 300 GHz. The guidelines cover many applications such as 5G technologies, WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile phones, and base stations. This publication replaces and superseeds the 100 kHz to 300 GHz part of the ICNIRP (1998) radiofrequency guidelines, as well as the 100 kHz to 10 MHz part of the ICNIRP (2010) low-frequency guidelines. 

Citation: ICNIRP. Guidelines for limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz). Health Phys 118(00):000–000; 2020. Pre-print. DOI: 10.1097/HP.0000000000001210.

The publication entails the main guidelines document and two appendices. The guidelines provides the exposure limits and rationale. Appendix A and B respectively provide further detail concerning the relevant dosimetry, and the biological and health effects reported in the literature.

Additional Information - Note that the Guidelines are the reference.
