Abstract:

The Final Proceedings for The role of EMF dosimetry in high quality risk assessment 13 September 2006 - 15 September 2006 In the last three decades the use of devices that emit electromagnetic fields EMF has increased dramatically. The proliferation of EMF devices has been accompanied by increased concern about ensuring the safety of their use. Thus accurate dosimetry represents an essential element of the research in determining the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. The seminar is covering the state of the science in the numerical and experimental dosimetry exposure assessment and problems in assessment of the corresponding uncertainty. It is extremely important to assess the uncertainty of the results due to the compliance requirements of the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 200440EC. The aim of the EMF seminar is a proactive discussion of upcoming issues of human exposure assessment to reassure high-quality of the assessment and reliable results which can further on contribute to the needed human health protecting strategies. The seminar is organized in following areas numerical and experimental methods oriented to deal with uncertainty exposure assessment in environment and workplaces standardization legislation and accreditation.
