Recommendations are made that protect personnel against established adverse health effects associated with exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields in the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz. The recommendations are expressed in terms of basic restrictions (BRs) and reference levels. The BRs are limits on internal fields, specific absorption rate (SAR), and power density; the reference levels are derived from the BRs, and are expressed in terms of external fields and induced and contact current. The recommendations, which protect against effects associated with electrostimulation, and localized and whole-body heating, are intended to apply to all personnel. These recommendations do not apply to exposures of patients by, or under the direction of, physicians and medical professionals. These recommendations are not intended for the purpose of preventing interference with medical and other devices that may exhibit susceptibility to electric, magnetic or electromagnetic fields.
