Resumen Guidelines for limiting occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) have been produced by international organizations, and have been recommended for use in the United Kingdom by the Health Protection Agency (HPA). There is also an EU Directive (the EMF Directive) which sets restrictions on occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and which is expected to be implemented in United Kingdom legislation by April 2012. Technical standardization bodies have produced assessment methods that can be used with these guidelines and with the EMF Directive. Neither the exposure restrictions nor the technical assessment standards specify how measurement and computation uncertainty should be considered as part of an over-all EMF assessment in the workplace. This report describes possible uncertainty management regimes, and discusses the likely implications of these regimes for United Kingdom industry. Although it does not describe in detail how to make an assessment of uncertainty, its appendices contain examples of uncertainty assessment from three CENELEC EMF assessment standards.
