Technical Information Statements


The following Technical Information Statements (TIS) were developed by IEEE entities (other than IEEE-USA) with expertise in the relevant subject field for purposes of public information and to increase awareness of specific technology issues. IEEE-USA assists in their dissemination.

Technical Information Statements are defined as documents that provide, for the public, accurate and comprehensive discussion of technical topics and their relationships to a subject or subjects of public concern and is intended to aid public and government bodies in their decision making.  They are differentiated from Technology Policy Statements, which are position statements adopted by IEEE-USA or other entities and which recommend "specific actions or choices for a subject where technical and non-technical issues should be considered by public and government bodies in their decision making."  IEEE-USA references IEEE technical information statements and utilizes the expertise of TIS authors when developing position statements on related subjects.

Biological Effects of Electric and Magnetic Fields

The Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR) is a Technical Committee of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). COMAR is comprised of experts in the field of biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation.  Here is a list of COMAR's current technical information statements:

IEEE entities who have developed Technical Information Statements that they would like to appear in this archive should contact Chris Brantley, with details, including information for linking to the current TIS on the World Wide Web and/or the HTML coded text of the statement to be hosted at this web site.
