Electromagnetic radiation is radiation which is emitted during the use or operation of a radiation source and creates an electromagnetic field in its near or distant surroundings, thereby posing a risk of causing adverse effects for humans and the biosphere. The near field is the part of the electromagnetic field nearest to a radiation source, where a plane wave has not yet evolved. The far field is the electromagnetic field in the impact area of a radiation source beyond the near field. In that zone a plane wave has developed.
A radiation source is a high-voltage transformer, electricity substation, above- or below-ground electric power line for electricity transmission, wireless communication transmitting system, radio or television transmitter, radar or other device or installation, the use or operation of which burdens the environment with:
