This standard contains the German version of the second edition of the European Standard EN 50527-2-1 with requirements for the assessment of workplaces with regard to the safety of persons with active implantable medical devices in electromagnetic fields in the frequency range 0 Hz to 300 GHz. The standard serves to the implementation of the European Workers Directive 2013/35/EU. The frequency range under consideration extends from 0 Hz bis 3 GHz. The methods for the assessment are specified in this standard. The assessment includes the likelihood of clinically significant effects and takes account of both transient and long term exposure within specific areas of the workplace (transient exposition).
