USA Radio Frequency Exposure Rules Update

USA Radio Frequency Exposure Rules Update
July 20, 2021

Rules issued in 2019 by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on the measurement of human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) emissions are valid since May 3rd.

The rules impose a thorough evaluation of RF emissions in potentially higher-exposure situations, while  providing a more effective exemption process in low-exposure situations (low-power devices, relatively large distances between the RF source and a person’s body, and/or duration of exposure).

Originally published in December 2019 along with further judgments on a human list for RF, the FCC’s Second Report clarifies the calculation methodologies that are used to determine potential RF exposure levels in cases where exemptions do not apply.
It also refers post-evaluation RF exposure mitigation procedures, including access, signage, and training to help minimize the risk of excessive RF exposure.
