There is already considerable controversy regarding the safety of electromagnetic fields generated by power transmission facilities such as high-voltage overhead lines and transformer stations. The possible effects of electromagnetic emissions from television and radio transmitters are also the subject of debate.
German legislation enacted the “26th Ordinance on the Implementation of the Federal Imission Control Act” (26. Verordnung zur Durchführung des Bundes-Immissionsschutzgesetzes (abbreviated 26. BImSchV)) to protect the public. This law deals with both high-frequency (10 MHz to 300 GHz) and low-frequency systems (50 Hz, 16 2/3 Hz).
The IMST Test Center offers:
- Performance of measurement studies and evaluation of the results with respect to 26.BImSchV
- Computer-based simulation and prediction of electromagnetic fields and exposure distribution from different sources, including mobile radio base stations, high-voltage overhead lines, and other sources.
- Performance of scientific-technical studies on electromagnetic immission
- Expert testimony and technical reports admissible as evidence in legal proceedings
