Ofcom has published a General Notice and notified other licensees of our proposals to vary a wide range of licences to require licensees to comply with the ICNIRP general public limits and keep records to demonstrate how they comply. This licence variation process is now underway, and we are now in a transition period. For more information, please visit our page on electromagnetic fields (EMF).

During this transition period, Ofcom will still accept new applications and will still issue licences. If you decide to apply for a licence (or continue with a licence application) during this time, we will take this as you consenting to these future changes.
