What is Safety Code 6?

The aim of Safety Code 6 is to set out safety limits for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy in the frequency range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz. The code sets out a series of exposure limits for both uncontrolled environments and controlled environments. The exposure limits specified in Safety Code 6 have been established based upon a thorough evaluation of the scientific literature related to the thermal and possible non-thermal effects of RF energy on biological systems.
