Magnetic fields and wireless technology

Magnetic fields arise around electrical devices and near power lines. Mobile phones, wireless computer networks and baby monitors are just a few examples of wireless technology that uses radio waves.

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority conducts measurements, evaluates research in the areas of magnetic fields and wireless technology, issues advice, gives recommendations, and develops and issues regulations. Our mandate encompasses exposure of the public. The Swedish Work Environment Authority focuses on magnetic fields and wireless technology in occupational settings.
