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 2.0 W/kg. The highest SAR value for this model phone was 0.991 W/kg.
