Traceable measurement of field strength and SAR for the Physical Agents Directive

Short Name: EMF and SAR, Project Number: T4.J07
With respect to the exposure of workers to electromagnetic fields (EMF) a new directive made the provisions of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) a legal requirement across Europe. When starting the project existing standards within Europe did not give comprehensive coverage of the specific absorption rate and the incident power flux density over this range.

The project, which started on April 1, 2008 aimed at providing traceable metrology for specific absorption rate and electromagnetic field strength measurements at all frequencies that are in widespread public use. It developed the expertise including contribution to international documentary standards, devices and measurement techniques to make these standards widely accessible for traceable measurements regarding exposure assessment in the environment, product compliance testing, and studies into biological effects of electromagnetic fields which underpin the international exposure limits.
