Nonionizing electromagnetic fields will almost certainly be present at future magnetic fusion reactor sites. The extents of the fields into areas occupied by personnel are only roughly known at present. However, biological effects from exposure to these fields are less well understood. Regulations or guidelines exist for both types of fields, although risk/benefit assessments cannot be made at present because of incomplete biological data. Such information is currently sought in federally funded research programs.
