EMF Monitoring Programme – Predefined EMF Audits

The MCA performs regular audits on the Electromagnetic Field (EMF) at pre-demarcated locations spread across Malta and Gozo. The aim of such audits is to ensure that EMF emissions present at the respective audit site does not exceed the EMF levels applicable in Malta as determined by the relevant competent authorities.  These levels refer to those of ICNIRP, the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection.
