Synopsis

The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) has recently published Advice on Limiting Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (0-300 GHz). This was accompanied by publication of Review of the Scientific Evidence for Limiting Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (0-300 GHz). The review supports the recommendation by ICNIRP that exposure guidelines for members of the public should be more restrictive than exposure guidelines for people occupationally exposed.

As part of the development of the advice, a consultation document was published on the NRPB website in May 2003. The consultation document detailed the scientific evidence providing the basis for exposure guidelines and made proposals for revising previous advice. NRPB-W59 provides a summary of the issues raised in the consultation comments and how these were addressed by NRPB in its science review and in developing its advice.
