International organizations confirm the impact of electromagnetic fields on human health and well-being

Many years in the making, the European Parliament Directive of 26 June 2013 is a document aiming to reduce the impact of EM Fields on human health. It undertakes the subject of the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields).

All EU Member States (including the UK) are required to implement the principles of the EM Fields EU Directive by the 1st of July 2016.

The European Union sets the EM Field standards

The Directive sets Exposure Limit Values (ELV) for electromagnetic fields, determining the intensity of the induced electric field in the frequency range from 1Hz to 3kHz, at the level of 1.1 V/m.

These standards relate to the field induced inside the human body and exceeding them can affect human health and wellbeing.

EM Fields direct effects on the human body

The EU Directive defines the biophysical effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body. Some of the possible human responses to EM Fields listed in the Directive are:

  • dizziness and headaches
  • nausea
  • mood disorders
  • chronic fatigue
  • insomnia
  • arrhythmia
  • muscle, brain and other organ disorders

Here are just a few of the possible consequences of the impact of EM Fields on the human body.

The Directive lists only the direct effects of human exposure to EM Fields – there are still not enough studies on the long term effects of electro smog on health.

NoEM will provide protection compliant with the international recommendations
