1st European ElectroMagnetic Fields Forum (EEMFF) conference "Experience of 8 years with the EU Directive 2013/35/EU", 15th to 16th November 2021


The European ElectroMagnetic Fields Forum (EEMFF) is a pan-european network of national occupational safety and health institutions aiming to enhance the implementation of the EMF Directive (2013/35/EU) in the EU member states. To provide occupational safety and health specialists with a platform to discuss their experiences and to exchange best practice, the EEMFF organised a conference in November 2021, hosted by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), Germany via webex.

To establish a dialogue between European and international occupational safety and health specialists, the conference offered several keynotes supported by poster presentations and in-depth workshops on the most relevant occupational safety and health topics concerning EMF:

  • Evolving the EMF Directive 2013/35/EU,
  • New and complex Sources, Future of occupational EMF Research,
  • The Role of Standardisation to enhance the Implementation of the EMF-Directive 2013/35/EU,
  • Workers at particular Risk, and
  • Best practice in Exposure Assessment.

More than 90 participants from 29 EU- and non EU-countries contributed to the first EEMFF-conference.
