In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the
United States, with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted
an updated safety standard for human exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those
guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both U.S.
and international standards bodies. The design of this device complies with
the FCC guidelines and these international standards.

Consumer Information About Radio Frequency
Your wireless device, which contains a radio transmitter and receiver, emits
radio frequency energy during use. The following consumer information
addresses commonly asked questions about the health effects of wireless
Are wireless devices safe?
Scientific research on the subject of wireless devices and radio frequency
(“RF”) energy has been conducted worldwide for many years, and continues.
In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the
Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) set policies and procedures
for wireless devices. The FDA issued a website publication on health issues
related to device usage where it states, The scientific community at large …
believes that the weight of scientific evidence does not show an association
between exposure to radiofrequency (RF) from the devices and adverse
health outcomes. Still the scientific community does recommend conducting
additional research to address gaps in knowledge. That research is being
conducted around the world and FDA continues to monitor developments
in this field. You can access the joint FDA/FCC website at http://www.fda.
gov (under “C” in the subject index, select Cell Phones > Research). You can
also contact the FDA toll-free at (888) 463-6332 or (888) INFO-FDA. In
June 2000, the FDA entered into a cooperative research and development
agreement through which additional scientific research is being conducted.
The FCC issued its own website publication stating that “there is no scientific
evidence that proves that wireless device usage can lead to cancer or a
variety of other problems, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss”.
This publication is available at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety or through the
FCC at (888) 225-5322 or (888) CALL-FCC.
What does “SAR” mean?
In 1996, the FCC, working with the FDA, the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, and other agencies, established RF exposure safety guidelines
for wireless devices in the United States. Before a wireless device model is
available for sale to the public, it must be tested by the manufacturer and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed limits established by the FCC.
One of these limits is expressed as a Specific Absorption Rate, or “SAR”.
SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy in the body. Tests
for SAR are conducted with the device transmitting at its highest power level
in all tested frequency bands. Since 1996, the FCC has required that the
SAR of handheld wireless device not exceed 1.6 watts per kilogram, averaged
over one gram of tissue.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest power level, the actual SAR
value of a wireless device while operating can be less than the reported SAR
value. This is because the SAR value may vary from call to call, depending
on factors such as proximity to a cell site, the proximity of the device to the
body while in use, and the use of hands-free devices. Before a device model
is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC
that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and
locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for
each model.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
emission guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on file with the
FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.
gov/oet/ea/fccid/ after searching on FCC ID ZNFV700.
For more information about SARs, see the FCC’s OET Bulletins 56 and 65
at http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/bulletins
or visit the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association website at
http://www.ctia.org/consumer_info/index.cfm/AID/10371. You may also wish
to contact the manufacturer of your device.
Can I minimize my RF exposure?
If you are concerned about RF, there are several simple steps you can take
to minimize your RF exposure. You can, of course, reduce your talk time.
You can place more distance between your body and the source of the
RF, as the exposure level drops off dramatically with distance. The FDA/
FCC website states that “hands-free kits can be used with wireless devices
for convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the absorption of
RF energy in the head because the device, which is the source of the RF
emissions, will not be placed against the head. On the other hand, if the
device is mounted against the waist or other part of the body during use,
then that part of the body will absorb more RF energy. Wireless devices
marketed in the U.S. are required to meet safety requirements regardless
of whether they are used against the head or against the body. Either
configuration should result in compliance with the safety limit”. Also, if you
use your wireless device while in a car, you can use a device with an antenna
on the outside of the vehicle. You should also read and follow your wireless
device manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of your device.
Do wireless devices pose any special risks to children?
The FDA/FCC website states that “the scientific evidence does not show
a danger to users of wireless communication devices, including children”.
The FDA/FCC website further states that “some groups sponsored by other
national governments have advised that children be discouraged from using
wireless device at all”. For example, the Stewart Report from the United
Kingdom [“UK”] made such a recommendation in December 2000. In
this report a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists
that using a device causes brain tumors or other ill effects. [The UK’s]
recommendation to limit device use by children was strictly precautionary; it
was not based on scientific evidence that any health hazard exists. A copy
of the UK’s leaflet is available at http://www.dh.gov.uk (search “mobile”), or
you can write to: NRPB, Chilton, Didcot, Oxon OX11 ORQ, United Kingdom.
Copies of the UK’s annual reports on mobile device and RF are available
online at www.iegmp.org.uk and http://www.hpa.org.uk/radiation/ (search
“mobile”). Parents who wish to reduce their children’s RF exposure may
choose to restrict their children’s wireless device use.

Consumer Information on SAR
(Specific Absorption Rate)
This model device meets the government's requirements for exposure to
radio waves.
Your wireless device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured 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 devices employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit
set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.
Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions specified by
the FCC with the device 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 device while operating can be well
below the maximum value. Because the device is designed to operate at
multiple 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 device model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested
and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by
the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are
performed in positions and locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body)
as required by the FCC for each model.
The highest SAR value for this device when worn on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 1.00 W/kg. (body-worn measurements differ
among device models, depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements). While there may be differences between SAR levels of various
devices and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement
for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF emission
guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid
after searching on FCC ID ZNFV700. Additional information on Specific
Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular Telecommunications
Industry Association (CTIA) website at http://www.ctia.org/.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile device used
by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue.
The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
Avoid potential hearing loss.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common
cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests
that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and
cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use of headphones
(including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with
tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing.
Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and other potential
hearing problems varies. The amount of sound produced by a portable
audio device varies depending on the nature of the sound, the device, the
device settings and the headphones. You should follow some commonsense
recommendations when using any portable audio device:
•Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at
which you can hear adequately.
•When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the
people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear what
you are listening to.
•Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose
to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment, use noisecancelling headphones to block out background environmental noise.
•Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is
required before your hearing could be affected.
•Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as
rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing
loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
•Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience
ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience any temporary
hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue
use and consult your doctor.

TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless handheld
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable device is a low power radio transmitter and
receiver. When ON, it receives and sends out Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless devices.
Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by
both U.S. and international standards bodies:
ANSI C95.1 (1992) *
NCRP Report 86 (1986)
ICNIRP (1996)
* American National Standards Institute; National Council on Radiation
Protection and Measurements; International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of
the relevant scientific literature. For example, over 120 scientists, engineers,
and physicians from universities, government health agencies, and industry
reviewed the available body of research to develop the ANSI Standard
The design of your device complies with the FCC guidelines (and those
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized
antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the device and may
violate FCC regulations.
Tips on Efficient Operation
For your device to operate most efficiently:
Don’t touch the antenna unnecessarily when the tablet is in use. Contact
with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the tablet to operate at a
higher power level than otherwise needed.
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF signals. However,
certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless device.
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between a handheld
wireless device and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the
pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the independent
research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
•Should ALWAYS keep the device more than six (6) inches from their
pacemaker when the device is turned ON;
•Should not carry the device in a breast pocket;
•Should use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
•Should turn the tablet OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect
that interference is taking place.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless device may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider (or
call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of
your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Your physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.
Health Care Facilities
Turn your device OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in
these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may use
equipment that could be sensitive to external RF energy.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its representative
regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the manufacturer of any
equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your device OFF in any facility where posted notices so require.
FCC regulations prohibit using your device while in the air. Switch OFF your
tablet before boarding an aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your device OFF when in
a “blasting area” or in areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio”. Obey all signs
and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmosphere
Turn your device OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas could
cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always
marked clearly. Potential areas may include: fueling areas (such as gasoline
stations); below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities;
vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); areas
where the air contains chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal
powders); and any other area where you would normally be advised to turn
off your vehicle engine.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including either
installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or in
the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
FDA Consumer Update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and
Radiological Health Consumer Update on Mobile Tablets:
1. Do tablets pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using tablets. There is no proof, however, that tablets are absolutely safe. Tablets emit low
levels of Radio Frequency (RF) energy in the microwave range while being
used. They also emit very low levels of RF when in idle mode. Whereas high
levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low
level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse
health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not found
any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological
effects may occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional
research. In some cases, other researchers have had difficulty in reproducing
those studies, or in determining the reasons for inconsistent results.
2. What is the FDA’s role concerning the safety of tablets?
Under the law, the FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as tablets before they can be sold, as it does with
new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency has authority to take
action if tablets are shown to emit Radio Frequency (RF) energy at a level
that is hazardous to the user. In such a case, the FDA could require the
manufacturers of tablets to notify users of the health hazard and to repair,
replace, or recall the tablets so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data does not justify FDA regulatory actions,
the FDA has urged the tablet industry to take a number of steps, including
the following:
•Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of the type
emitted by tablets;
•Design tablets in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user that is
not necessary for device function; and
•Cooperate in providing users of tablets with the best possible information
on possible effects of tablet use on human health.
The FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong to this
working group:
•National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
•Environmental Protection Agency
•Occupational Safety and Health Administration
•National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency working
group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for tablets with the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). All tablets that are sold in the United
States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit RF exposure. The
FCC relies on the FDA and other health agencies for safety questions about
The FCC also regulates the base stations that the tablet networks rely upon.
While these base stations operate at higher power than do the tablets
themselves, the RF exposures that people get from these base stations are
typically thousands of times lower than those they can get from tablets. Base
stations are thus not the subject of the safety questions discussed in this
3. What kinds of devices are the subject of this update?
The term “wireless device” refers here to handheld wireless devices with
built-in antennas, often called “cell”, “mobile”, or “PCS” devices. These types
of wireless devices can expose the user to measurable Radio Frequency (RF)
energy because of the short distance between the device and the user’s
These RF exposures are limited by FCC safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of the FDA and other federal health and safety
agencies. When the device is located at greater distances from the user,
the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF exposure
decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source.
4. What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and many
studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods. Animal
experiments investigating the effects of Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposures characteristic of wireless devices have yielded conflicting
results that often cannot be repeated in other laboratories. A few animal
studies, however, have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate
the development of cancer in laboratory animals. However, many of the
studies that showed increased tumor development used animals that had
been genetically engineered or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so
as to be pre-disposed to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure.
Other studies exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These
conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use wireless
devices, so we do not know with certainty what the results of such studies
mean for human health. Three large epidemiology studies have been
published since December 2000. Between them, the studies investigated
any possible association between the use of wireless devices and primary
brain cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, tumors of the
brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of the studies
demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects from wireless
device RF exposures. However, none of the studies can answer questions
about long-term exposures, since the average period of device use in these
studies was around three years.
5. What research is needed to decide whether RF exposure from
tablets poses a health risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of people
actually using tablets would provide some of the data that are needed.
Lifetime animal exposure studies could be completed in a few years.
However, very large numbers of animals would be needed to provide reliable
proof of a cancer promoting effect if one exists. Epidemiological studies
can provide data that is directly applicable to human populations, but ten
or more years follow-up may be needed to provide answers about some
health effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between the time
of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors develop — if
they do — may be many, many years. The interpretation of epidemiological
studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring actual RF exposure during
day-to-day use of tablets. Many factors affect this measurement, such as the
angle at which the tablet is held, or which model of tablet is used.
6. What is the FDA doing to find out more about the possible
health effects of tablet RF?
The FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority animal
studies are conducted to address important questions about the effects of
exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
The FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its inception in
1996. An influential result of this work has been the development of a
detailed agenda of research needs that has driven the establishment of new
research programs around the world. The project has also helped develop a
series of public information documents on EMF issues.
The FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research And Development Agreement
(CRADA) to do research on wireless device safety. The FDA provides the
scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in government, industry,
and academic organizations. CTIA-funded research is conducted through
contracts with independent investigators. The initial research will include both
laboratory studies and studies of wireless device users. The CRADA will also
include a broad assessment of additional research needs in the context of
the latest research developments around the world.
7. How can I find out how much Radio Frequency energy
exposure I can get by using my tablet?
All tablets sold in the United States must comply with Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines that limit Radio Frequency
(RF) energy exposures. The FCC established these guidelines in consultation
with the FDA and the other federal health and safety agencies. The FCC limit
for RF exposure from wireless devices is set at a Specific Absorption Rate
(SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC limit is consistent with
the safety standards developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering (IEEE) and the National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement. The exposure limit takes into consideration the body’s ability
to remove heat from the tissues that absorb energy from the tablet and is
set well below levels known to have effects. Manufacturers of tablets must
report the RF exposure level for each model of tablet to the FCC. The FCC
website (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety) gives directions for locating the
FCC identification number on your tablet so you can find your tablet’s RF
exposure level in the online listing.
8. What has the FDA done to measure the Radio Frequency
energy coming from tablets?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is developing
a technical standard for measuring the Radio Frequency (RF) energy
exposure from tablets and other wireless handsets with the participation and
leadership of FDA scientists and engineers. The standard, “Recommended
Practice for Determining the Spatial-Peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
in the Human Body Due to Wireless Communications Devices: Experimental
Techniques”, sets forth the first consistent test methodology for measuring
the rate at which RF is deposited in the heads and bodies of tablet users.
The test method uses a tissue-simulating model of the human head and
body. Standardized SAR test methodology is expected to greatly improve
the consistency of measurements made at different laboratories on the
same tablet. SAR is the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in
tissue, either by the whole body or a small part of the body. It is measured in
watts/kg (or milliwatts/g) of matter. This measurement is used to determine
whether a tablet complies with safety guidelines.
9. What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to Radio
Frequency energy from my tablet?
If there is a risk from these products — and at this point we do not know
that there is — it is probably very small. But if you are concerned about
avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps to minimize
your exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Since time is a key factor
in how much exposure a person receives, reducing the amount of time
spent using a tablet will reduce RF exposure. If you must conduct extended
conversations using a wireless device every day, you could place more
distance between your body and the source of the RF, since the exposure
level drops off dramatically with distance. For example, you could use
a headset and carry the tablet away from your body or use a wireless
device connected to a remote antenna. Again, the scientific data does not
demonstrate that tablets are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF
exposure from these products, you can use measures like those described
above to reduce your RF exposure from tablet use.
10. What about children using tablets?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of tablets, including
children and teenagers. If you want to take steps to lower exposure to Radio
Frequency (RF) energy, the measures described above would apply to
children and teenagers using tablets. Reducing the time of tablet use and
increasing the distance between the user and the RF source will reduce RF
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that
children be discouraged from using wireless devices at all. For example, the
government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets containing such a
recommendation in December 2000. They noted that no evidence exists
that using a wireless device causes brain tumors or other ill effects.
Their recommendation to limit wireless device use by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not based on scientific evidence that any health hazard
11. What about wireless communications device interference with
medical equipment?
Radio Frequency (RF) energy from wireless communications devices can
interact with some electronic devices. For this reason, the FDA helped
develop a detailed test method to measure Electro Magnetic Interference
(EMI) of implanted cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless
devices. This test method is now part of a standard sponsored by the
Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The
final draft, a joint effort by the FDA, medical device manufacturers, and
many other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard will allow
manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe
from wireless communications device EMI.
The FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
devices and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard specifies test
methods and performance requirements for hearing aids and wireless
communications devices so that no interference occurs when a person uses
a “compatible” device and a “compatible” hearing aid at the same time. This
standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000.
The FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless communications devices
for possible interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful
interference be found to occur, the FDA will conduct testing to assess the
interference and work to resolve the problem.
