5G measurements

As part of our monitoring role, we will carry out measurements of public exposure to EMF, including 5G signals, in everyday environments. As 5G is deployed, this will enable us to assess if the total EMF exposure levels have increased, as well as their comparison with existing everyday values and ICNIRP exposure recommendations. The results of these measurements, together with those for other frequencies, will be made available on this website.

It is expected that ComReg will perform regular measurements near licensed transmitter sites including 5G antennas. More information about ComReg's role on 5G can be found here.

Other agencies, such as Ofcom in the UK, are also performing 5G measurements. A report of 5G measurements carried out on behalf of OfCom can be found at this link.
