Joint Working Group between ETSI Safety and CENELEC TC 106X
The Assessment of Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields from Devices used in the Broadcast and Ancillary Services including SAP/ SAB and ENG/OB.
This Joint Working Group will investigate and produce a Standard or Standards, as appropriate, in support of EU requirements on EMF exposure relating to the R&TTE Directive (1999/5/EC), Article 3.1(a), and the Council Recommendation on exposure of the general public to EM Fields (1999/519/EC).
The following Products and/or Application Areas will be included:
Broadcast Service Transmitters in all Licensed Bands
Sites shared with other users
The selection above is taken on the basis of known technological similarities. It may be changed/extended if new, similar, applications are identified.
NOTE: Although the intent is to concentrate the work on the above devices, it is understood that there could be products which use similar frequencies/technologies which might benefit in the future by using the resultant Standard(s).
The Standards to be produced will contain:
Any necessary theoretical considerations
Measurement Methods and Techniques
Conversion methods to Basic Restrictions and/or Limits
Reference to Generic Standards, EC Recommendation(s)/Directive(s) and ICNIRP Documents, as necessary

Others as available during the existence of the Working Group
The Working Group will consist of:
A Convenor nominated by TC106X/National Committees and ETSI
Members nominated by National Committees/TC106X
