----> New in 2014 !!Guidelines on induced electric fields in static fields below 1 Hz

Radiofrequency

---> EMF guidelines - 1998
Guidelines for Limiting Exposure to Time-Varying Electric, Magnetic, and Electromagnetic Fields (up to 300 GHz). Health Physics 74 (4): 494-522; 1998.

The EMF guidelines published in 1998 are now being revised and replaced step by step. This process is explained in a statement.

---> Statement on EMF guidelines - 2009
Statement on the "Guidelines for limiting exposure to time-varying electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields (up to 300 GHz). Health Physics 97(3):257-259; 2009.

Work on the RF range is ongoing and validated by the above mentioned statement on the EMF guidelines. In 2009 ICNIRP finalized a comprehensive review of health effects of radiofrequency by evaluating the research in the areas of biology, physics and dosimetry, and epidemiology. In this frequency range a statement on the results of the INTERPHONE paper has also been issued.

Static magnetic fields
The revision of the guidelines in this frequency range is completed. Also revised is the guidance concerning patients and the use of magneto resonance procedures. Guidelines on electric fields induced by movement in a static magnetic field and by time varying magnetic field below 1 Hz also complete the works on static fields.

---> Guidelines on Static Fields - 2009
Guidelines on Limits of Exposure to Static Magnetic Fields. Health Physics 96(4):504-514; 2009.

Amendment to the Icnirp "Statement on Medical Magnetic Resonance (MR) Procedures: Protection of Patients". Health Physics 97(3):259-261; 2009.


Low frequency
The update of the guidelines was finalized mid 2010 and is now published at Health Physics.
