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
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.
A listing of possible measurement goals related to characterizing quasi-static magnetic and electric fields and possible methods for their accomplishment is provided.

C95.3.1-2010 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Measurements and Computations of Electric, Magnetic, and Electromagnetic Fields with Respect to Human Exposure to Such Fields, 0 Hz to 100 kHz
Techniques and instrumentation for the measurement and computation of electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic (EM) fields in the near field of an EM field source are presented in this recommended practice. Descriptions of the concepts, techniques, and instruments that can be applied to the measurement of the electric and magnetic fields and the currents induced in the human body by these fields are provided. Techniques for determining the current density and the electric field strength within the human body are discussed. This recommended practice is intended primarily for use by engineers, biophysicists, and other specialists who are familiar with basic EM field theory and practice, and the potential hazards associated with EM fields. It will be most useful to bioeffects researchers, instrumentation developers and manufacturers, those developing calibration systems and standards, and persons involved in critical hazard assessments or hazard surveys.
