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. Plenary papers presented at the meeting focused on current research findings on a variety of topics, including exposure assessment, dosimetry, biological effects, epidemiology, the basis for exposure limits, and emerging health issues. Panel discussions focused on identifying key scientific information needs for and the policy implications of the development of further EPA guidance on human exposure to RF radiation.
