The assessment and limitation of exposure to the population of the electromagnetic field shall be determined by Cabinet Regulation No. 637 of 16 October 2018, Regulations Regarding Assessment and Limitation of the Effects of Electromagnetic Field on Population.
These Regulations prescribe the emission limit values and target values of the electromagnetic field, which are created by devices for the production of electricity and the transmission of electric current, as well as radio frequency devices, such as cellphone base stations.
The regulatory values for radiation are based on recommendations adopted by the European Union (Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC of 12 July 1999 on restrictions on exposure to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz) to the general public). These Regulations shall also prescribe methods for the assessment of electromagnetic field radiation, requirements for the prevention or reduction of risks caused by an electromagnetic field, as well as the competent authority for the control of electromagnetic field radiation, which is the Health Inspectorate a. These Regulations shall not apply to the working environment, as well as to sources of radiation in the medical and defence field and to electrical goods intended for personal use, including mobile phones, as well as “thief-catching” equipment in shops, etc., the safety of which must be assessed and certified by the manufacturer.
