Purpose: The purpose of this meeting is to provide an opportunity for individual input regarding scientific and technical aspects of a joint study by NIOSH and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on Start Printed Page 18094“Measuring Improved Metrics of EMF Exposure in an Electric Utility”. The study's goal is to test the feasibility of combining measurements of these new EMF exposure metrics with existing epidemiologic data to produce a more valid assessment of EMF health risks. Designated reviewers will individually critique the study protocol and provide comments on the conduct of the study and its prospects for achieving its goals. Others will be given an opportunity to provide individual comments.
Agenda items are subject to change as priorities dictate.
