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.

C95.3-2002 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Measurements and Computations of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields With Respect to Human Exposure to Such Fields, 100 kHz-300 GHz
echniques and instrumentation for the measurement and computation of potentially hazardous electromagnetic (EM) fields both in the near field and the far field of the electromagnetic source are specified.The specifications previously set forth in IEEE Std C95.3 -1991 are extended and combined. Leakage and near-field measurements and a description of the concepts, techniques, and instruments that can be applied to the measurement of specific absorption rate (SAR) or the electric field strength in organisms (including humans) and phantoms exposed to electromagnetic fields are included.Below 100 MHz, the current flowing through the body to ground is measurable and can be used to determine the SAR and, therefore, a brief treatment of low- frequency body current measurement is included.
