Framework for developing health-based EMF standards

Cover of Standards Framework

Large disparities between national limits and international guidelines can foster confusion for regulators and policy makers and increase public anxiety. These factors have motivated WHO to build a Framework for developing health-based EMF standards.

This Framework addresses how to develop science-based quantitative EMF exposure limits. It is intended for national advisory and/or regulatory bodies that are either developing new standards for EMF or reviewing the basis of their existing standards.
