The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has made some of its IEEE C95 safety standards for human exposure to electromagnetic fields available for download, free of cost.

Now, anyone can view and download the standards through the IEEE Get Program, at no cost. The select IEEE C95 standards available are: IEEE C95.1-2005; IEEE C95.3-2002; IEEE C95.3.1-2010; and IEEE C95.6-2002.

"The publication of these standards provides, more easily than ever before, the factual information that underlies the standards that most countries, including the U.S., base their safety regulations on," IEEE said.

The family of IEEE C95 standards establishes limits for human exposure to electromagnetic fields; standardises methods that manufacturers and engineers can use to measure and compute radiofrequency (RF) and other electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields to which people may be exposed; and details a safety programme that organisations can use to ensure RF safety in the workplace and other facilities.

"We invite businesses and governments around the world to download and employ the IEEE C95 standards," said Ron Petersen, IEEE Life Fellow and Past Chairman of IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES). "The IEEE C95 standards are science-based and represent decades of work conducted in an open, consensus-based process by the largest and most diverse community of international experts involved in electromagnetic safety standardisation."

"Complimentary public access to select IEEE C95 standards is made possible by funding from the U.S. Department of Defense, which sponsors their publication on the IEEE Get Program web site."
