The Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency (ARRA) created the nonionizing radiation section to enforce Arizona Administrative Code Title 12 Chapter 1, Article 14 "The Control of Nonionizing Radiation". These rules address sources of radiofrequency radiation (RF) in the environment, occupational exposure concerns, as well as public exposure. ARRA regulates Class 3B and Class 4 lasers used in the medical, industrial and light show fields; Ultraviolet radiation in tanning facilities; RF radiation sources such as heat sealers and industrial ovens; and RF radiation in the industrial environment within a frequency range of 0.3 megahertz (MHz) to 100 Gigahertz (GHz); and communication sources through a registration/license program.
In addition to our regulatory role, ARRA provides information to the public concerning RF and Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) through distribution of US Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Communications Commission, and US Department of Energy documents. This web page has been created to aid in the dissemination of this information and to provide additional information through links to Internet addresses where Nonionizing Radiation information is available.
