The first RF exposure product compliance assessment standard has got approval for publication on May 2017 by both IEEE and IEC. This is the first dual logo standard on the RF exposure compliance assessment resulted as jointly developed standard between IEEE/ICES TC34 & IEC TC106. The Project was first initiated as IEEE project but at later stage upon the mutual interest between two organizations was changed to a jointly developed activity.

The standard as IEEE document is:

IEEE 62704-2-2017:   Standard for Determining the Peak Spatial Average Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body from Wireless Communications Devices, 30 MHz−6 GHz—Part 2: Specific Requirements for Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Modelling of Exposure from Vehicle Mounted Antennas.

When the IEEE/ICES TC34 SC2 planed the development of numerical standards development it faced numerous challenges such as convincing different bodies that computational techniques can also be efficiently and reliably used in EMF compliance assessment protocols. The project team IEEE/ICES PT62704-2 led by Dr. Giorgi Bit-Babik and TC34 SC2 successfully overcame all challenges and during several years  of development period carried out high quality and demanding studies to support the rationales in the protocol. This became a long journey but it led to the development of a scientifically sound standard based on computational techniques acceptable also to the regulatory bodies. The result is the first IEEE/IEC dual logo standard in EMF computational compliance assessment standard!

IEEE/ICSE Administration Committee would like to congratulate Goga Bit-Babik and the team for the successful completion of this valuable standardization work.
