Non-ionizing Radiation

Radiofrequency - Microwave and Magnetic Field Safety

This program applies to all users of devices and equipment designed to generate radiofrequency (RF), microwave, or magnetic fields (static or time varying). Examples include radio transmitters, microwave sources for research, MRI (magnetic resonance imagining), SQUID (superconducting quantum interface device), particle accelerators, computer drive erasers, etc. The information provided here will assist users in ensuring safety and regulatory compliance for non-ionizing radiation sources.

Safety guides are available under the Requirements/Guidelines link.
