About this event

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the availability and adoption of electronic and wireless devices for both personal and industrial use. The advent of Internet-of-Things (IoT) has further increased connectivity of devices to change business models across various industries as well as to improve the daily lives of people. However, this kind of technological revolution has also contributed to the electromagnetic pollution. 
Environmental and occupational health risks are increasingly a focus of public concern. It is important to limit and control the exposure of non-ionizing radiation (NIR) at domestic and industrial areas. Nowadays in Hong Kong, such increase in awareness of health hazards associated with exposure to non-ionizing radiation has driven higher demand on electromagnetic field measurement.

The aim of this technical seminar is to discuss the myths and facts about NIR and to share information related to International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), which provides scientific advice and guidance on the health and environmental effects of NIR to protect people and the environment from detrimental NIR exposure. 

ICNIRP, a main contributor to the international scientific NIR dialogue and the advancement of NIR protection, gives recommendations on limiting exposure for the frequencies in the different NIR subgroups. It develops and publishes Guidelines, Statements, and reviews used by regional, national, and international radiation protection bodies, such as the World Health Organization.
