United States: Reassessment of Federal Communications Commission Radiofrequency Exposure Limits and Policies

Thank you to the Editor of The Microwave Factor for keeping us up-to-date on EMF information world-wide.

Reassessment of Federal Communications Commission Radiofrequency Exposure Limits and Policies

The deadlines have been set for comments and reply comments in an FCC proceeding to reassess the limits and policies governing exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields. On March 29, the FCC released a long document which included both a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Notice of Inquiry.

The FCC Notice of Inquiry, ET Docket No. 13–84, FCC 13–39, was adopted March 27, 2013 and released March 29, 2013. However, the Notice of Inquiry was not published in the Federal Register until June 4, 2013. Being published in the Federal Register starts the official clock for a 90-day comment period.

Comments must be filed on or before September 3, 2013, and reply comments must be filed on or before November 1, 2013. The unusually long period for comments reflects the complexity of the proceeding and underscores the Commission’s desire for specific information on the costs and benefits related to the RF exposure issue.
