Model Legislation

Cover of Model Legislation

In response to requests from Member States, the International EMF Project has developed a Model Legislation that provides the legal framework for implementing protection programmes against non-ionizing radiation.

This Model Legislation follows the widely accepted practice among lawmakers of having an enabling Act that permits the responsible Minister to subsequently issue Regulations, Statutory Orders or Ordinances, as appropriate, to deal with specific areas of concern. It comprises a Model Act, a Model Regulation and an Explanatory Memorandum describing the approach to the Act and its Regulations.
