Over the past few decades applications of electrical and electromagnetic energy continue to improve our quality of life, e.g., electric lighting, radio and TV broadcasting, microwave ovens, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mobile telephones, Wi-Fi, and Smart Meters, etc. Occasionally questions regarding safety of new technologies arise following their introduction.
For more than 50 years, IEEE SCC39 (International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety-ICES) and its predecessor (ANSI Accredited Standards Committee C95) have been developing recommended exposure limits and assessment methods to help protect against established adverse health effects associated with exposure to the electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields produced by these technologies.
Because of interest raised by the public and others, several of these IEEE C95 standards are now publicly available at no cost through the IEEE Get Program.
