Publication Date: 1 June 2018
Status: active
Page Count: 26
ICS Code (Measurement of electrical and magnetic quantities): 17.220.20
scope:

This document, which is a Technical Report, provides general information on the assessment of contact current related to human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. The contact currents in this context occur when a human body comes into contact with a not electrified conductive object exposed to an electric and/or magnetic field at a different electric potential owing to electric and/or magnetic induction to the object. This is distinguished from the issue of electrical safety where contact with live parts of a conductive object is dealt with.

In reference to the international EMF guidelines [1]-[4] 1 , the frequency range of contact current covered in this document is direct current to 110 MHz, and only steady-state (continuous) contact currents are covered. Transient contact currents (spark discharges) which may occur immediately before the contact with the object are not covered.
