FCC Proposed Rule – Reassessment of Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields Limits and Policies

Federal Communications Commission FCC 13-3, released March 29, 2013: “This document seeks comment on proposals developed in the course of the Federal Communications Commission’s (Commission’s) proceeding regarding compliance with our guidelines for human exposure to RF electromagnetic fields. The Commission’s further proposals reflect an effort to provide more efficient, practical, and consistent application of evaluation procedures to ensure compliance with its guidelines limiting human exposure to RF energy from Commission-regulated transmitters and devices. In addition the Commission has initiated a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) in a new proceeding to determine whether there is a need for reassessment of the Commission radiofrequency (RF) exposure limits and policies. The NOI acknowledges the research that has occurred in recent years and the changing nature of RF devices and their uses, and focuses on the propriety of the Commission’s existing standards and policies, including its fundamental exposure guide lines and aspects of its equipment authorization process and policies as they relate to RF exposure in light of these changes since its rules were adopted.”
