Guidelines on Limits of Exposure to Static Magnetic Fields (2009) - Australian Government


You will be required to comply with these guidelines if you are the holder of a source licence and intend to deal with non-ionising controlled apparatus.

These guidelines are referred to as the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

The guidelines provide a general framework for the protection of people who may be exposed to static electric or magnetic fields, a tool for practical safety assessment of exposure in relation to recommended exposure restrictions, and a basis for operational procedures at workplace and facilities.
