>-053- EMF RAPID Program
>PUBLICATION: [Federal Register: May 07, 1998 (Volume 63, Number 88)]
>AGENCY: National Institutes of Health, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN
>ACTION: Notice of Meeting
>REGULATED ENTITIES/ AFFECTED CATEGORIES: Electric and Magnetic Fields
>Research and Public Information Dissemination (EMF RAPID) Program
>SUMMARY: The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
>and the Department of Energy (DOE) are coordinating the implementation
>of the Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF) Research and Public
>Information Dissemination (RAPID) Program. The EMFRAPID Program was
>established by the 1992 Energy Policy Act (Section 2118 for Public Law
>102-486) which was signed in October 1992. This five-year effort is
>designed to determine the potential effect from exposure to 60 Hz
>electric and magnetic fields on biological systems, especially those
>produced by the generation, transmission, and use of electric energy.
>The RAPID Program requires the NIEHS to report on the extent to which
>exposure to electric and magnetic fields adversely affects human health.
>Additional details of this program are found in Federal Register
>December 16, 1997, (Volume 62, No. 241, pp. 65814-65815).
>Working Group Meeting on EMF Health Effects Research Open to the Public
>The next phase of the NIEHS report development process includes a
>Working Group meeting of scientists from multiple disciplines. The
>Working Group members are tasked with writing a comprehensive review of
>the literature on the potential for extremely low frequency EMF to
>affect human health. This document will draw conclusions on the strength
>and robustness of the data and its implications for human health effects
>and disease etiology. This meeting is scheduled for June 15-24, 1998, at
>the Northland Inn, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, and is open to the public.
>Detailed information about the EMF RAPID Program is found on the world
>wide web at www.niehs.nih.gov/emfrapid/home.htm. For additional
>information about the Working Group meeting, send a request by fax to
>919-541-0144 or by mail to EMFRAPID Program, LCBRA, NIEHS, NIH, PO Box
