ICNIRP radiofrequency guidelines 2020

Posted on 3/12/20

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) has released the long-awaited guidelines on limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields for the protection of humans exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields in the range 100 kHz to 300 GHz. The guidelines cover many applications such as 5G technologies, WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile phones and base stations. This publication replaces the 100 kHz to 300 GHz part of the ICNIRP (1998) radiofrequency guidelines as well as the 100 kHz to 10 MHz part of the ICNIRP (2010) low-frequency guidelines.

The ICNIRP homepage provides further information. Morevover, Frequently Asked Questions related to the ICNIRP RF Guidelines 2020 are answered and the main differences between the new and previous guidelines are explained there.
