Swiss Chamber of Technical and Forensic Experts Visit Zurich43

Members of the Swiss Chamber of Technical and Forensic Experts visited the IT'IS Foundation to learn about procedures for safety certification of wireless devices and medical implants. A presentation by Prof. Niels Kuster on the history of certification processes and procedures for setting safety limits and the development of the field of electromagnetic exposure from the science perspective was followed by discussions and a tour of the specific absorption rate (SAR) assessment laboratory (Ally Pally). The group of experts also had the opportunity to see first-hand in the Yellow Submarine Lab how an evaluation of the safety of medical implants during exposure to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners is conducted.
