  7. International WHO EMF Project Guidelines for Quality EMF Research • The project should test a clearly defined hypothesis • The biological system used should be appropriate to the end-point(s) studied • Only well-characterized biological systems or assays should be used • The number of tests in an experiment should be sufficient to detect reliably the expected size of the effect • A protocol, consistent with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) guidelines should be established and documented (including symmetric handling of specimens, appropriate controls, blind-study guidelines) • Quality assurance (QA) procedures including dosimetry and monitoring of the programme by an independent group are required
