    Radiation Protection Series The Radiation Protection Series   is published by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) to promote practices which protect human health and the environment from the possible harmful effects of radiation. ARPANSA is assisted in this task by its Radiation Health and Safety  Advisory Council, which reviews the publication program for the Series   and endorses documents for publication, and by its Radiation Health Committee, which oversees the preparation of draft documents and recommends publication. There are four categories of publication in the Series  : Radiation Protection Standards  set fundamental requirements for safety. They are prescriptive in style and may be referenced by regulatory instruments in State, Territory or Commonwealth jurisdictions. They may contain key procedural requirements regarded as essential for best international practice in radiation protection, and fundamental quantitative requirements, such as exposure limits. Codes of Practice  are also prescriptive in style and may be referenced by regulations or conditions of licence. They contain practice-specific requirements that must be satisfied to ensure an acceptable level of safety in dealings involving exposure to radiation. Requirements are expressed in ‘must’ statements. Recommendations  provide guidance on fundamental principles for radiation protection. They are written in an explanatory and non-regulatory style and describe the basic concepts and objectives of best international practice. Where there are related Radiation Protection   Standards  and Codes of Practice,  they are based on the fundamental principles in the Recommendations . Safety Guides  provide practice-specific guidance on achieving the requirements set out in Radiation Protection   Standards  and Codes of Practice . They are non-prescriptive in style, but may recommend good practices. Guidance is expressed in ‘should’ statements, indicating that the measures recommended, or equivalent alternatives, are normally necessary in order to comply with the requirements of the Radiation Protection   Standards  and Codes of Practice . In many cases, for practical convenience, prescriptive and guidance documents  which are related to each other may be published together. A Code of Practice  and a corresponding Safety Guide  may be published within a single set of covers.  All publications in the Radiation Protection Series   are informed by public comment during drafting, and  Radiation Protection Standards  and Codes of Practice , which may serve a regulatory function, are subject to a process of regulatory review. Further information on these consultation processes may be obtained by contacting ARPANSA.      RADIATION PROTECTION STANDARD Maximum Exposure Levels to Radiofrequency Fields — 3 kHz to 300 GHz Radiation Protection Series Publication No. 3 This Standard was approved by the Radiation Health Committee on 20 March 2002. On 12 April 2002 the Radiation Health & Safety Advisory Council advised the CEO that the Standard might be considered for adoption.
