On April 26 and 27, 1993, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Air and Radiation and Office of Research and Development held a conference to assess the current knowledge of biological and human health effects of radiofrequency (RF) radiation and to address the need for and potential impact of finalization of federal guidance on human exposure to RF radiation. Two key conclusions emerged from the conference: (1) there is sufficient information on thermal exposure/effects on which to base an RF radiation exposure standard; and (2) EPA should develop some type of RF radiation exposure guidelines. These conclusions were considered by EPA in its decision to proceed with the developments of guidelines on human exposure to RF radiation and to develop a longer term strategy to address remaining issues. v. 1.
