WHAT STANDARDS DO WE WORK ON?
The main purpose of setting limit values is to protect the population and the environment from harmful or detrimental effects on the one hand, and to comply with the precautionary principle on the other. In addition, the limit values do not primarily reflect the boundaries between insignificant and risk factors, but represent political and economic trade-offs between perceived health risks and economic considerations. The development of standards and limits is hampered by the fact that electromagnetic radiation cannot be ruled out at the level of civilization and technology of our time.
At the same time, it is an aggravating factor that the exposure of the population is constantly increasing. Scientists argue with each other, questioning limits, but there is agreement on two things:
• long-term effects are unknown
• exposure must be reduced
Prior to the installation of the radiation protection system, Decree 33/2016 EMMI and SBM 2008 use the Building Biology measurement method, which is documented in a protocol.
