ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY GUIDE (EMEG) AND SITE COMPLIANCE

An EMEG is a comprehensive compliance report addressing RF EME and exposure risk at telecommunication sites.

 

The EMEG is produced from site data collated from multiple sources using ProX5 EME – Corearth’s proprietary RF EME modelling software – to predict RF EME general public and occupational worker exposure boundaries.

In order for a telecommunication site to be deemed compliant with ACMA’s licence condition determination, Corearth offers the following RF EME assessment services.

  • EME Guides.
  • Preliminary RF Hazard Drawings.
  • ARPANSA EMR Environmental Report.
  • Site Audits.
  • RF EME Measurements.

REGULATORY REQUIREMENT & COMPLIANCE FRAMEWORK

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) sets public health limits governing human exposure to RF EME. These exposure limits are set out in the ARPANSA Standard RPS-S1 – Radiation Protection Standard – Maximum exposure levels to radio frequency fields – 3 kHz to 300 GHz. This Standard has been adopted by the ACMA as the definition of EME exposure limits for communication equipment.

The regulatory requirement that defines compliance with the requirements of the Standard is achieved by means of a Licence Condition attached to each radio communication licence. The Radio Communications Licence Conditions (Apparatus Licence) Determination 2015 mandates that the operation of equipment does not exceed the general public exposure limit.

EME Design Review

EME Design Review

All mobile base station sites are required to be approved for EME compliance. This process ensures the safety of the General Public.

Preliminary RF EME Drawings

Preliminary RF EME Drawings

Compliance relies on the successful design of a mobile base station installation. The location of neighbouring areas of interest must be reviewed to ensure EME compliance can be achieved with proposed construction drawings.

Environmental Management Report

Environmental Management Report

Environmental Management Reports (EMR’s) are required for all mobile base station installations. EMR’s offer additional protection and confidence to the General Public ensuring areas of interest surrounding base station have been considered.

RF EME Modelling

RF EME Modelling

The provision of compliance documents, such as EMEG’s, SCR’s and SCC’s all require RF EME modelling of the mobile base station (MBS) installation. As part of this modelling process, RF EME signage is reviewed along with personnel access points to ensure compliance for the entire site.
