EMF Awareness

Next Course:

The new EMF Directive 2013/35/EU will come into force in July 2016, limiting the exposure of workers to levels of magnetic, electric and electromagnetic fields considered harmful.

The EMF Recommendation (1999/519/EC) requires manufacturers of apparatus under the Low Voltage and R&TTE Directives to assess their emissions with respect to human exposure.

The limits are largely based on guidelines published by the International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), and protect against established, harmful biological effects. New research since the old, never-in-force EMF Directive 2004/40/EC has led to significant changes to the limits at low frequencies.

UK legislation is awaited, along with official (but non-binding) guidance from the EU.
