ICNIRP, the HSE, Ofcom, the Health Security Agency and the World Health Organisation are the primary EMF authoritative bodies. The documents produced by ICNIRP, or the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, form the basis for all UK electromagnetic guidance and limits. With decades of experience in EMF measurement, we provide quality services for EMF compliance with ICNIRP, or any other electromagnetic field safety guideline or standard. Whatever your industrial sector or issue, our award-winning Chartered Radiation Protection Professionals provide the route to compliance for your organisation. Please get in touch for your no obligation, free consultation.
We have completed hundreds of high quality EMF safety assessments across a wide range of sectors. Whether your company requires an electromagnetic compliance assessment for your facility, a survey for your development or EMF testing of your equipment, our chartered experts provide the solution to your compliance problems. Our Founder and Managing Director, Dr Richard Findlay, is a leading EMF safety specialist. Richard is currently the Chair of the Society for Radiological Protection’s EMF Safety Committee. He is also a Fellow of the SRP, a Chartered Radiation Protection Professional and has published over twenty scientific papers on electromagnetic fields during the last three decades.
We have a huge amount of experience in assessing EMF exposure against ICNIRP and other requirements. So, it is likely that our experts have previously assessed electromagnetic fields for your exposure situation, in your sector. Our electromagnetic field measurement and modelling methods are derived from state-of-the-art space technology. As a result, we were awarded a place in the European Space Agency BIC. After successfully completing the ESA BIC programme, the advanced EMF measures and services we have developed can now be applied to your EMF radiation protection project.
EMFcomp is SafeContractor accredited and an Affiliate of the Society for Radiological Protection. We provide a wide range of leading electromagnetic field testing from human EMF exposure modelling to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) measurements.

Power frequency (50 Hz) fields, or extremely low frequencies (ELF), can cause adverse health effects in workers such as headaches, dizziness, confusion and muscle twitching. They can also interfere with cardiac devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators. That is why EMF safety legislation has been introduced in the UK, to ensure that employers provide a safe working environment for their employees.
High frequency, or radiofrequency (RF) fields can present health hazards such as heatstroke, RF burns and hyperthermia in workers. These fields can also heat passive implants (plates, screws or rods in the body) or interfere with a worker’s cardiac device (pacemakers, heart pumps and defibrillators). Limits such as those presented in ICNIRP guidance and UK legislation are designed to prevent these adverse health effects from occurring in the workplace.
ICNIRP advice and the UK’s EMF Regulations, based on this ICNIRP guidance, state EMF limits – below which adverse effects from EMF exposure will not occur. Employers in all sectors have a legal responsibility to assess employee electromagnetic field exposure. If levels are above EMF exposure limits, employers are required to limit workers exposure to these fields. By carrying out EMF detection activities, hazards can be assessed.
Compliance with the limits in ICNIRP guidance and Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations can be achieved by either measurement or calculation. We use calibrated, state-of-the-art measurement equipment that measures to the latest HSE guidance and Action Levels set out in their EMF Regulations. We use complex computational methods to calculate induced electric fields or SAR in the body, to compare with the Exposure Limit Values in the CEMFAW documentation. The EMF reports we produce following an assessment are in-depth, detailed documents containing information relating the legislation and guidance, methods used, a breakdown of results along with recommendations, action plans and mitigation measures. Our high-quality assessment reports are just one of the reasons why we are an award-winning EMF assessment organisation.
UK legislation states that electromagnetic radiation assessments, measurements and calculations should be planned and carried out by competent persons at regular intervals. EMFcomp Limited is made up of experienced radiation specialists who can carry out this electromagnetic field safety assessment for you, allowing your staff to get on with their day-to-day duties. We are Chartered Radiation Protection Professionals (CRadP) and have an excellent track record of helping companies, large or small, with EMF compliance.
Our company is the leading specialist in authoritative EMF safety advice, EMF detection, and services. In 2013, we co-wrote the European Commission’s Guide on EMF Safety, ‘The Practical Guide to the EMF Directive’, that contains ICNIRP limits and forms the basis for assessing compliance with ‘The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016’. The advice, measurement and modelling services that we provide in electromagnetic safety are derived from our published scientific research.
