The objective of Supplement 1 to the ITU-T K-series Recommendations is to answer questions commonly posed by the public on the electromagnetic field (EMF) phenomenon and to address related concerns.

This Guide on electromagnetic fields and health aims to:

Provide electromagnetic field (EMF) information and education resources suitable for all communities, stakeholders and governments.

Support clarification of the science by referencing the World Health Organization (WHO) and other stakeholders (see NOTE) that provide information that is particularly useful in helping to clarify scientific uncertainties e.g., in the areas of radio frequency (RF) technology, infrastructure implementation, usage and consequential EMF exposure.

NOTE  The primary reference on EMF and health is the World Health Organization (WHO). The primary reference on EMF assessment methods is the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
