Electromagnetic fields are present everywhere in our environment, naturally on the planet and in the natural physiology of the human body, and wherever electricity is generated, transmitted, distributed or used.
When used properly, electromagnetic fields contribute to the improvement of our quality of life, health and well-being. However, above certain levels, these fields can be harmful to health and affect the human body in different ways depending on their frequency. Thus, there are standards for limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields, both for specific frequencies and applications and for the entire electromagnetic field spectrum.
In addition to full compliance with applicable legislation and regulations, EDP systematically follows the development of national and international scientific studies and adopts the recommendations of world reference entities, especially the World Health Organization (WHO).
