Abstract

Television and radio broadcasting stations, ham radio transmitters, citizens band radios, ground level and satellite communication systems, civil and military aircraft navigation systems, airport traffic control systems, medical diathermy units, defense tracking systems, remote garage door opening devices, microwave ovens, and a variety of units for industrial heating and processing of materials contribute to the expansion of RFR use in the world. In the line with growing awareness of the possible hazards of exposure to microwaves calls were increasingly made for regulatory intervention with a view to combating the hazards encountered by persons working with electromagnetic waves and by the population in general. An overview of the situation in the European Community, regarding the definitions and units, the standards for health protection and the research planned by the Commission is given.
