International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety

Today, operating under the rules and oversight of the IEEE Standards Association Standards Board, the International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) is responsible for development of standards for the safe use of electromagnetic energy in the range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz relative to:
  1. the potential hazards of exposure of humans, volatile materials, and explosive devices to such energy,
  2. standards for products that emit electromagnetic energy by design or as a by-product of their operation, and
  3. standards for environmental limits.
ICES follows an open consensus process, with a balance of disciplines and a balanced representation from the medical, scientific, engineering, industrial, government, and military communities. As of 24 November 2014, membership of the central governing and the technical committees (TC95 and TC34) stood at more than 209 professionals representing 27 countries. ICES strives to achieve consensus among all the stakeholders in the safe use of electromagnetic energy, thereby producing practical science-based standards that are readily accepted and applied.
