Federal Communications Commission (FCC) compliance for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and lasers

Radiation Control Program's advisory on FCC compliance for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and LASERs.

FCC compliance

A guide for local government officials (June 2, 2000) concerning the FCC requirements which complements the FCC's OET Bulletin 65, "Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields", August 1997 is available along with Bulletin 65.

To obtain this information, please contact the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology:

You can also download Bulletin 65 from the FCC's "RF Safety" website.

Since the FCC requirements are now identical to the requirements under 105 CMR 122.021, reporting to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is no longer necessary. The citation in the regulations will be changed during the next revision of the Radiation Control Program's regulations.

If there are any questions concerning health effects regarding radiofrequency antennas, individuals may contact the Bureau of Environmental Health of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health at (617) 624-5757.
