Subject: [Histonet] CAP Question ANP.27720 Microwave Leakage

Good Morning Histonetters,
I have a question about a question on the CAP Checklist.  We are doing our 
Self-Evaluation and one of the new questions ANP.27720 "Are microwave 
devices monitored at least annually to ensure that there is less than 
5mW/cm2 leakage at a distance of 5 cm from the surface?"
Question:  Who takes the measurement???  My Biomed Departmet does not and 
neither does my Engineering Department!!!  I'm not sure where to go from 
here, so I thought.....THE HISTONET!!!!!!!!!
Please Help!
