Limit values

The German Electromagnetic Field Ordinance, which is based on the Federal Pollution Control Act (26th BImSchV), entered into force in 1997 and was amended in August 2013. It was enacted to protect the population against health effects from electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields.

Occupational safety

Although the exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields is relatively low for the general public, there are certain working environments where exposure is high.
