This European Standard applies to devices used in Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and similar applications. The objective of the Standard is to specify, for such equipment, the methods for demonstration of compliance with basic restrictions or reference levels related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields.

The Council Directive 1999/5/EC [4], Article 3.1(a), defines essential requirements for equipment that is either radio equipment or telecommunications equipment or both; with regard to the protection of the health and safety of the user and any other person. This document may be used for demonstration of compliance to the Council Directive with reference to human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF’s). There are additional requirements covered by Article 3.1(a), which are not included in this document.

The Council Directive 73/23/EEC [3], Article 2, stipulates that the Member States take all appropriate measures to ensure that electrical equipment may be placed on the market only if, having been constructed in accordance with good engineering practice in safety matters in force in the Community, it does not endanger the safety of persons, domestic animals or property when properly installed and maintained and used in applications for which it was made. The principal elements of those safety objectives are listed in annex I clause 2b. This document may be used for demonstration of compliance to the Council Directive only with reference to human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF’s). There are additional requirements covered by Article 2 and annex I clause 2b, which are not included in this document.

The Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC [2] provides Basic Restrictions and derived Reference Levels for exposure of the general public in the areas where they spend significant time. This document may be used for demonstration of equipment compliance to the Council Recommendation on this basis, but there may be additional specific National or International requirements which are not included.

The ICNIRP Guidelines [1] provide Basic Restrictions and derived Reference Levels for both occupational and general public exposure. This document may be used for demonstration of equipment compliance to ICNIRP Guidelines on this basis, but there may be additional specific National or International requirements which are not included.

Other Standards can apply to products covered by this document. In particular this document is not designed to assess the electromagnetic compatibility with other equipment, medical or otherwise. It does not reflect any product safety requirements other than those specifically related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields.
