Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of equipment intended for use only by workers with limits on human exposure to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz - 300 GHz), when put into service or in situ

The object of this generic standard is to provide a route for evaluation of equipment used by workers against limits on human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, and induced and contact current  when it is put into service in its operational environment, and also for in situ or post-market evaluation of such equipment
The frequency range covered is 0 Hz to  300 GHz.
The requirement for this standard arises from the withdrawal of EMF standardisation mandate M/305 and its replacement by M/511 and M/536.  Previously only EMF product standards for equipment used by the public were mandated; that restriction has been removed and now standards are to be developed for products used by workers also.
For equipment used by workers, there is a specific need to assess whether when it is put into service, or afterwards when operating under reasonably foreseeable use conditions, its emissions meet EMF exposure limits when contributions from other nearby equipment are also considered. This is a particular issue in occupational environments where high power equipment can be close to other similar equipment, or to e.g power distribution systems.

Product standard for electromagnetic fields from household appliances, and similar electrical apparatus used by the public and workers, with regard to human exposure

La présente norme générique est destinée à fournir un mode d'évaluation des équipements utilisés par les travailleurs en ce qui concerne les limites d'exposition des personnes aux champs électriques, magnétiques et électromagnétiques ainsi qu'au courant induit et de contact ; cette évaluation intervient au moment de la mise en service de ces équipements dans leur environnement d'exploitation et aussi sur site ou après leur commercialisation. La gamme de fréquences couverte va de 0 Hz à 300 GHz. D'autres normes peuvent s'appliquer aux produits couverts par le présent document. En particulier, ce document n'est pas destiné à évaluer la compatibilité électromagnétique avec d'autres appareils, et il ne reflète pas les exigences de sécurité du produit autres que celles liées spécifiquement à l'exposition des personnes aux champs électromagnétiques. La présente norme s'applique aux équipements électriques et électroniques pour lesquels il n'existe aucune norme de produit ni de famille de produits dédiée concernant l'exposition des travailleurs aux champs électromagnétiques que ce soit lors de la mise en service des équipements ou sur site. Si une telle norme existe, elle doit être utilisée en lieu et place de la présente norme.

Splošni standard za prikaz skladnosti opreme, ki jo uporabljajo samo delavci z omejitvami glede izpostavljenosti elektromagnetnim poljem (0 Hz-300 GHz), namenjene za uporabo ali in situ

Namen tega splošnega standarda je opredelitev načina vrednotenja opreme, ki jo uporabljajo delavci, v povezavi z omejitvami glede izpostavljenosti ljudi električnim, magnetnim in elektromagnetnim poljem ter induciranemu in kontaktnemu toku pri začetku uporabe opreme v ustreznem delovnem okolju in tudi opredelitev načina vrednotenja tovrstne opreme na mestu uporabe ali po dajanju na trg.
Zajet frekvenčni razpon je od 0 Hz do 300 GHz.
Zahteva po tem standardu je posledica umika mandata o standardizaciji elektromagnetnega sevanja (EMF) M/305 ter njegove zamenjave z mandatoma M/511 in M/536.  Pred tem so bili vzpostavljeni samo standardi za proizvode elektromagnetnega sevanja za opremo, ki je na voljo za javno uporabo; ta omejitev je bila odpravljena in zdaj se razvijajo tudi standardi za proizvode, ki jih uporabljajo delavci.
Pri opremi, ki jo uporabljajo delavci, je treba (ko se začne uporabljati ali naknadno pri uporabi pod razumno predvidljivimi pogoji) oceniti zlasti, ali njene emisije izpolnjujejo zahteve glede mejnih vrednosti izpostavljenosti elektromagnetnemu sevanju ob upoštevanju vplivov druge opreme v bližini. To velja zlasti v delovnih okoljih, v katerih je visokonapetostna oprema morda nameščena blizu druge podobne opreme ali npr. sistemov za distribucijo električne energije.

at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting (dow) 2020-09-11
with the EN have to be withdrawn

This European Standard has to be read in conjunction with EN 62311:2008 “Assessment of electronic and

electrical equipment related to human exposure restrictions for electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz)”.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European Commission and

the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of the Radio Equipment

Directive 2014/53/EU (M/536) and the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU (M/511).

1 Scope

The object of this generic standard is to provide a route for evaluation of equipment used by workers against

limits on human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, and induced and contact current

when it is put into service in its operational environment, and also for in situ or post-market evaluation of

such equipment.
The frequency range covered is 0 Hz to 300 GHz.

This standard applies to equipment for which no dedicated harmonized putting-into-service or in situ product

standard regarding worker exposure to electromagnetic fields exists. If such a standard does exist then it

should be used. At the time of writing there is one applicable standard, for base station equipment, and this

should be used for putting-into service or in situ assessment of such equipment with respect to worker

exposure to electromagnetic fields:

EN 50401:2017. Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of base station equipment with

radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure limits (110 MHz - 100 GHz), when put into service

The current list of standards harmonized under each Directive should be consulted at the time of use of this

standard.

NOTE Other standards can apply to equipment covered by this document. In particular, this document is not

designed to evaluate the electromagnetic compatibility with other equipment; nor does it reflect any product safety

requirements other than those specifically related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields.

exceeded, it does not necessarily follow that the exposure limit value will be exceeded

3.2
exposure limit values

restrictions on exposure of workers to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields that are based directly on

established health effects and biological considerations
3.3
worker

person exposed to electromagnetic fields under the conditions defined in Directive 2013/35/EU
