Protection Guides for RF Radiations: Recent Developments in the U.S.A.
The history of U.S. standards for controlling human exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic (RF) fields is largely an account of efforts by Committee C95.1 and Subcommittee C95-IV of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Other agencies and institutions have been involved in standard-setting, but the ANSI efforts have left an indelible imprint on all such activities (see, e.g., Report 861 of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, and the review2 by Elder and Cahill).
