The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) guidelines provide the information necessary for industry to ensure that equipment which produces electromagnetic fields does not expose people to fields of sufficient strength to give rise to established biological effects. Basic restrictions are given in terms of current density and SAR within the body tissues since there are the dose quantities which are related to the established biological effects. The guidelines also give investigation in terms of external field strength which can be used, possibly with measurements, to assess compliance, but they also allow recourse to the basic restriction.
