The following aspects are considered in this work:

  • Provision for compliance with basic exposure restrictions to prevent harmful effects
  • Specification of appropriate measurement techniques
  • Provision of guidance on the reduction of exposure of people
  • Guidance on the reduction of indirect effects of exposure (contact current effects)
