Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information
This mobile phone model KM900
has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for
exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety
margins designed to assure the
safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
• The radio wave exposure
guidelines employ a unit of
measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardised methods with the
phone transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all used
LG KM900 | User Guide
frequency bands.
• While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various
LG phone models, they are all
designed to meet the relevant
guidelines for exposure to radio
waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by
the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) is 2W/kg averaged over
10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this
model phone tested by DASY4 for
use at the ear is 0.602 W/kg (10g)
and when worn on the body is
0.646 W/Kg(10g).
• SAR data information for
residents in countries/regions
that have adopted the SAR limit
recommended by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg averaged
over 1g of tissue.
