PC95.3 - Recommended Practice for Measurements and Computations of Electric, Magnetic and Electromagnetic Fields With Respect to Human Exposure to Such Fields, 0 Hz-300 GHz

The purpose of this recommended practice is to specify techniques and instrumentation for the measurement and computation of potentially hazardous electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields both in the near-field and the far field of the source. In so doing, this document incorporates and extends the specifications previously set forth in IEEE Std C95.3-2002 and C95.3.1-2010. In addition to measurement and computation of exposure fields, this document includes a description of the concepts, techniques, and instruments that can be applied to the measurement and computation of the specific absorption rate or the electric field strength in organisms (including humans) and phantoms exposed to electromagnetic fields. Measurement and computation of induced and contact current is also included. This document is intended primarily for use by engineers, biophysicists, and other specialists who are familiar with basic electromagnetic field theory and practice, and the potential hazards associated with exposure to such fields.This recommended practice describes methods for measuring and computing external electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields to which persons may be exposed over the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz. Instrument characteristics and the methods of calibrating such instruments and methods for computation and the measurement of the resulting fields and currents that are induced in bodies of humans exposed to these fields are included.
