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
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 2.0 W/kg. The highest SAR value for this model phone
was 0.437 W/kg.
