The draft of the ICNIRP Guidelines on Limiting Exposure to Time-Varying Electric, Magnetic and Electromagnetic Fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz) is now ready for public consultation. The draft is comprised of the main guidelines document, and two appendices.
As part of the development of the guidelines, ICNIRP has regularly given draft guidelines presentations to encourage critique and discussion from the many experts who are not members of ICNIRP. From this interaction we believe that the draft guidelines have developed substantially, and in particular into a logical, rigorous and transparent means of providing safety for both general public exposures and workers exposed to radiofrequency fields as part of their occupational duties. Now we expect through this Public Consultation to receive the detail required for further robust critique of this public health document.
Please fill the form and provide your comments using only the template available below.
The consultation process opens on 11 July and terminates on 9 October 2018. After the 90 days consultation period, all comments will be reviewed by the ICNIRP members for finalization of the draft. Information regarding the publication date will be displayed on the ICNIRP website in due course.
At the end of the consultation phase, ICNIRP reserves the right to publish all comments. With your explicit consent, your identity (i.e. your last and first name, and when relevant your affiliation and organization) will be added. Otherwise, the comments will be shown anonymously. When all comments have been considered, a short feedback will be provided via the website on how ICNIRP dealt with the comments. For time constraints, though, no individual replies will be formulated. Please note that insulting comments or such comments not related to the documents in consultation will not be published. Also the deadline of 9 October (UTC +2) will be strictly applied.
We greatly value your contribution. Thank you for this !
