SAR information
Your wireless phone 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 European Union (EU) Council. These limits
are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF
energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on the safety
standards that were developed by independent scientific organisations
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 phones employs a unit of measurement
known as Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the EU
Council is 2.0W/kg. The highest SAR value for this model phone was
0.729 W/kg.
