Understanding the impact and regulations of RF-EMFs

In today's tech-driven world, radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) are undeniably prevalent. From medical applications to telecommunications and everyday household devices, RF-EMF technologies are omnipresent. As their usage continues to soar, so does the importance of adhering to stringent regulations set forth by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ensure the safety of humans and the environment.

According to this study by the National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine, “The technological applications of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) have been steadily increasing since the 1950s. RF-EMF are used in medicine (e.g., magnetic resonance imaging, diathermy, radiofrequency ablation); industry (e.g., heating and welding); domestic appliances (e.g., baby monitors, Wi-Fi); security and navigation (e.g., radar and RFID); and especially in telecommunications (e.g., radio and TV broadcasting, mobile telephony). These developments mean that large parts of the global population are now exposed to RF-EMF and more will be exposed in the future. Concern has been raised regarding public health consequences from RF-EMF…”

Understanding the significance of FCC compliance in mitigating potential health risks associated with RF-EMF exposure, UST offers full-service EMF compliance testing and resolution services. With our team of experts and state-of-the-art facilities, we provide comprehensive solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of our clients.


The FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) oversees the regulation of electromagnetic spectrum usage and sets guidelines to ensure the safe operation of RF-EMF emitting devices. The OET regularly releases updated bulletins with new safety guidance based on the latest EMF technologies, like 5G, beam forming and beam steering antennas, Wi-Fi 6, and the like.

The onus is on each company, whether you’re a network operator, a wireless infrastructure provider, or a device manufacturer, to comply with OET regulations. Therefore, companies must regularly test their products and equipment to ensure compliance, and the compliance documentation must be readily available whenever the FCC conducts an audit. Penalties for non-compliance can range from ongoing regulatory investigations to stiff financial consequences and even the revocation of spectrum licenses.

At UST, we understand the importance of complying with OET regulations, especially given advancements in technologies like 5G and Wi-Fi 6.

Partnering with UST offers several benefits, including:


A case study: How UST helped a major North American wireless provider achieve compliance

UST's reputation as a trusted RF-EMF compliance testing and verification service provider is exemplified by our partnership with a major North American wireless provider. Our experienced team conducts roughly 5,000 on-site emissions tests annually. These tests encompass entire cell towers and individual components like antennas, base stations, masts, and ground equipment. After meticulously analyzing the emissions data and generating a comprehensive report, we provide clear recommendations to address compliance concerns.

These recommendations involve modifications to existing structures, installation of shielding barriers, power adjustments, or proper EMF signage. In cases where specific recommendations are impractical due to cost, location, or landlord restrictions, we work collaboratively with the telecom company to find alternative solutions that ensure compliance.

Our clients work with us year after year due to our comprehensive suite of services, which encompasses RF-EMF emissions testing, analysis, and resolution. We guarantee legal compliance with FCC regulations through our extensive on-site testing services across North America. Our highly skilled personnel possess the expertise to test and analyze any electromagnetic structure and stay updated on the latest FCC compliance policies. We consistently receive exceptional service ratings for professionalism, technical knowledge, responsiveness, and efficient service delivery.
