(Specific Absorption Rate)
This Model Phone Meets the Government’s Requirements
for Exposure to Radio Waves. Your wireless phone is a
radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manu-
factured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to
radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and
establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on standards that
were developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies.The standards include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR.The SAR limit set by the FCC is
1.6W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard
operating positions specified by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. Because the phone is designed to operate at mul-
tiple power levels to use only the power required to reach
the network, in general, the closer you are to a wireless
base station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public,
it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not
requirements for hearing aids and wireless phones
so that no interference occurs when a person uses a
“compatible” phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at
the same time. This standard was approved by the
IEEE in 2000.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones
for possible interactions with other medical devices.
Should harmful interference be found to occur, FDA
will conduct testing to assess the interference and
work to resolve the problem.
