refers to the safety standards regarding human exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields published by ICNIRP, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, and IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
IEEE (ICES-C95) and ICNIRP are two international Standards on human protection from electromagnetic fields that are relevant to the RF-EMF emitted by all wireless technologies. Both standards are based on scientific evidence and aim at protecting against all known adverse effects that have been demonstrated by science. They are advisory documents that have been adopted by most nations and are recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). Although there are differences between how the two organisations function, in terms of safety relevant to 5G technologies, exposure restrictions are essentially the same.
Importantly, both IEEE and ICNIRP provide equivalent restriction values to protect against adverse health effects and protect against exposures from instantaneous to ongoing (24/7), from localized to whole-body exposures, and for all people (ranging from babies and pregnant women to the elderly, and from the healthy to the infirm). Adverse health effects have not been verified for RF exposures that comply with these restriction values.
