Health Canada's mandate regarding human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy from wireless devices is to carry out research into possible health effects, monitor the scientific literature related to such effects, and develop exposure guidelines. The current version of these exposure guidelines is specified in a document entitled: Limits of Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Energy in the Frequency Range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz - Safety Code 6 (2009). This code is accompanied by the Technical Guide for Interpretation and Compliance Assessment of Health Canada's Radiofrequency Exposure Guidelines, to assist users in understanding and assessing the safety of electromagnetic exposures in working and living environments.
2009 Canada created the "Safety Code 6" which is Health Canada's Radiofrequency Exposure Guidelines. The exposure limits in Safety Code 6 are based on an ongoing review of published scientific studies, including both internal and external authoritative reviews of the scientific literature, as well as Health Canada's own research. The code is periodically revised to reflect new knowledge in the scientific literature. The current version of Safety Code 6 reflects the scientific literature published up to August 2009 and replaces the previous version published in 1999.
