The standard describes 2D models for evaluation of compliance with basic restrictions for human safety with exposure to low frequency and intermediate frequency electromagnetic fields. It applies to the frequency range for which the exposure limits are based on the induction of voltages or currents in the human body, when exposed to electric and magnetic fields. This frequency range covers the low and intermediate frequencies, up to 100 kHz.
