EPA's role in EMF

In May 2019, Regulation S.I. 190 of 2019 were signed into law to extend the functions of the EPA to cover public exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). 

These functions include:

  • to provide advice to the Government and the public on exposure to electromagnetic fields (including on relevant standards for public protection);
  • to monitor scientific/technological developments likely to impact on public exposure to EMF and
  • to carry out independent monitoring of public exposure to electromagnetic fields to support our advisory role.
