As of March 1st 2003, the Australian Communications & Media Authority (ACMA) introduced new limits for human exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) covering all mobile transmitters such as remote controlled toys, walkie-talkies and hand held two-way radios as well as radio communications installations such as broadcast towers and amateur radio stations. Note that EMR and EME are often used interchangeably.
Under the new regulations, mandatory limits are set by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and people who hold a licence for a radiocommunications facility will have to comply, and in certain cases, hold records demonstrating compliance with the limits. To ensure that you are in compliance with these standards you can obtain the services of RADHAZ Consulting Pty Ltd. We are a qualified company holding NATA accreditation in the field of EME and under the ACMA regulatory framework are deemed to provide the highest level of confidence to meet compliance.
RADHAZ Consulting Pty Ltd is the leading EME consultancy in Australia with a strong reputation and proven ability for service and knowledge in the Industry.
Our company was selected as the principal contractor for a national rooftop trial to look at the issues required to effectively manage and document EME at a site or facility, to meet both OH&S and ACMA compliance requirements under the new ARPANSA standard. Procedures and documentation developed by us during the trial are now the basis used throughout Australia and can be applied to your situation.
Our consultants would be happy to discuss any questions you may have and develop a compliance process for you.
