Exposure to Radio
Frequency Signal
Your wireless handheld portable
telephone is a lowpower radio
transmitter and receiver. When it
is ON, it receives and also sends
out radio frequency (RF) signals.
In August, 1996, the Federal
Communications Commissions
(FCC) adopted RF exposure
guidelines with safety levels for
handheld wireless phones.
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)
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 (C95.1).

(and those standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an
approved replacement antenna.
Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments
could damage the phone and
may violate FCC regulations.

Safety Guidelines
Hearing Aids
The Health Industry
Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum
separation of six (6’) inches be
maintained between a handheld
wireless phone 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
phone more than six inches
from their pacemaker when
the phone is turned ON;
• Should not carry the phone in
a breast pocket.
• Should use the ear opposite
the pacemaker to minimize the
potential for interference.
• If you have any reason to
suspect that interference is
taking place, turn your phone
OFF immediately.
Some digital wireless phones
may interfere with some hearing
aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to
consult your service provider.

Administration Centre for
Devices and Radiological Health
Consumer Update on Mobile
1. Do wireless phones pose a
health hazard?
The available scientific
evidence does not show that
any health problems are
associated with using wireless
phones. There is no proof,
however, that wireless phones
are absolutely safe. Wireless
phones emit low levels of
radio frequency energy (RF)
in the microwave range while
being used. They also emit
very low levels of RF when in
the standby 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.
Safety Guidelines
2. What is the FDA’s role
concerning the safety of
wireless phones?
Under the law, the FDA does
not review the safety of
radiation emitting consumer
products such as wireless
phones before they can be
sold, as it does with new drugs
or medical devices. However,
the agency has authority to take
action if wireless phones are
shown to emit radio frequency
energy (RF) at a level that is
hazardous to the user. In such
a case, the FDA could require
the manufacturers of wireless
phones to notify users of the
health hazard and to repair,
replace, or recall the phones so
that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific
data do not justify FDA
regulatory actions, the FDA
has urged the wireless phone
industry to take a number of
steps, including the following:
• Support needed research
into possible biological
effects of RF of the type
emitted by wireless phones;
• Design wireless phones in a
way that minimizes any RF
exposure to the user that
is not necessary for device
function; and
• Cooperate in providing users
of wireless phones with the
best possible information on
possible effects of wireless
phone 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
ational Institute for
Occupational Safety and
• Environmental Protection
• Occupational Safety and
Health Administration
(Administración de la
seguridad y salud laborales)
• Occupational Safety and
Health Administration
• National Telecommunications
and Information
The National Institutes of Health
participates in some interagency
working group activities, as well.
The FDA shares regulatory
responsibilities for wireless
phones with the Federal
Communications Commission
(FCC). All phones 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 wireless phones.
The FCC also regulates the base
stations that the wireless phone
networks rely upon. While these base
stations operate at higher power than
do the wireless phones themselves,
the RF exposures that people get
from these base stations are typically
thousands of times lower than those
they can get from wireless phones.
Base stations are thus not the subject
of the safety questions discussed in
this document.
3.What kinds of phones are the
subject of this update?
The term ‘wireless phone’
refers here to handheld
wireless phones with built-in
antennas, often called ‘cell’,
‘mobile’, or ‘PCS’ phones.
These types of wireless
phones can expose the user
to measurable radiofrequency
energy (RF) because of the
short distance between
the phone and the user’s
head. These RF exposures
are limited by FCC safety
guidelines that were developed
with the advice of the FDA
and other federal health and
Safety Guidelines
safety agencies. When the
phone 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. The so-called
‘cordless phones,’ which have
a base unit connected to the
telephone wiring in a house,
typically operate at far lower
power levels, and thus produce
RF exposures far below the
FCC safety limits.
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 radiofrequency
energy (RF) exposures
characteristic of wireless
phones 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 predisposed 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 phones, so
we don’t 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
phones 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 phone RF exposures.
However, none of the studies
can answer questions about
longterm exposures, since the
average period of phone use
in these studies was around
three years.
5.What research is needed to
decide whether RF exposure
from wireless phones poses a
health risk?
A combination of laboratory
studies and epidemiological
studies of people actually
using wireless phones 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 10 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
wireless phones. Many factors
affect this measurement, such
as the angle at which the
phone is held, or which model
of phone is used.
Safety Guidelines
6.What is the FDA doing to find
out more about the possible
health effects of wireless
phone 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 radiofrequency energy (RF).
The FDA has been a leading
participant in the World Health
Organization International
Electromagnetic 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 phone safety. The
FDA provides the scientific
oversight, obtaining input
from experts in government,
industry, and academic
organizations. CTIAfunded
research is conducted through
contracts with independent
investigators. The initial
research will include both
laboratory studies and studies
of wireless phone users. The
CRADA will also include a
broad assessment of additional
research needs in the
context of the latest research
developments around the
7.How can I find out how much
I can get by using my wireless
All phones sold in the United
States must comply with
Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) guidelines
that limit radiofrequency
energy (RF) 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 telephones 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
wireless phone and is set well
below levels known to have
effects. Manufacturers of
wireless phones must report
the RF exposure level for each
model of phone to the FCC.
The FCC website
rfsafety) gives directions for
locating the FCC identification
number on your phone so
you can find your phone’s RF
exposure level in the online
8.What has the FDA done to
measure the radiofrequency
energy coming from wireless
The Institute of Electrical and
Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
is developing a technical
standard for measuring the
radiofrequency energy (RF)
exposure from wireless phones
and other wireless handsets
Safety Guidelines
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 of wireless phone
users. The test method uses
a tissuesimulating model of
the human head. Standardized
SAR test methodology
is expected to greatly
improve the consistency
of measurements made at
different laboratories on the
same phone. 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 wireless
phone complies with safety
9.What steps can I take to
reduce my exposure to
radiofrequency energy from
my wireless phone?
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
radiofrequency energy (RF).
Since time is a key factor
in how much exposure a
person receives, reducing the
amount of time spent using a
wireless phone will reduce RF
exposure. If you must conduct
extended conversations by
wireless phone 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
wireless phone away from
your body or use a wireless
phone connected to a remote
antenna. Again, the scientific
data do not demonstrate that
wireless phones 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 wireless phone
10. What about children using
wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does
not show a danger to users
of wireless phones, including
children and teenagers. If you
want to take steps to lower
exposure to radiofrequency
energy (RF), the measures
described above would apply
to children and teenagers
using wireless phones.
Reducing the time of wireless
phone use and increasing the
distance between the user
and the RF source will reduce
RF exposure. Some groups
sponsored by other national
governments have advised that
children be discouraged from
using wireless phones 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 phone causes
brain tumors or other ill
effects. Their recommendation
to limit wireless phone use
by children was strictly
precautionary; it was not
based on scientific evidence
that any health hazard exists.
Safety Guidelines
11. What about wireless phone
interference with medical
Radiofrequency energy (RF)
from wireless phones can
interact with some electronic
devices. For this reason, the
FDA helped develop a detailed
test method to measure
electromagnetic interference
(EMI) of implanted cardiac
pacemakers and defibrillators
from wireless telephones.
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 phone EMI. The FDA
has tested hearing aids for
interference from handheld
wireless phones 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
phones so that no interference
occurs when a person uses
a ‘compatible’ phone 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 phones
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.

10 Driver Safety Tips
Your wireless phone gives
you the powerful ability to
communicate by voice almost
anywhere, anytime. An important
responsibility accompanies the
benefits of wireless phones, one
that every user must uphold.
When operating a car, driving is
your first responsibility.
When using your wireless phone
behind the wheel of a car,
practice good common sense
and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless
phone and its features such
as speed dial and redial.
Carefully read your instruction
manual and learn to take
advantage of valuable features
most phones offer, including
automatic redial and memory.
Also, work to memorize the
phone keypad so you can
use the speed dial function
without taking your attention
off the road.
Safety Guidelines
2. When available, use a
handsfree device. A number
of handsfree wireless phone
accessories are readily
available today. Whether you
choose an installed mounted
device for your wireless phone
or a speaker phone accessory,
take advantage of these
devices if available to you.
3. Position your wireless phone
within easy reach. Make sure
you place your wireless phone
within easy reach and where
you can reach it without
removing your eyes from the
road. If you get an incoming
call at an inconvenient time,
if possible, let your voicemail
answer it for you.
4. S uspend conversations during
hazardous driving conditions
or situations. Let the person
you are speaking with know
you are driving; if necessary,
suspend the call in heavy
traffic or hazardous weather
conditions. Rain, sleet, snow
and ice can be hazardous, but
so is heavy traffic. As a driver,
your first responsibility is to
pay attention to the road.
5. Do not take notes or look
up phone numbers while
driving. If you are reading an
address book or business
card, or writing a “to-do”
list while driving a car, you
are not watching where you
are going. It is common
sense. Don’t get caught in a
dangerous situation because
you are reading or writing and
not paying attention to the
road or nearby vehicles.
6. Dial sensibly and assess the
traffic; if possible, place calls
when you are not moving or
before pulling into traffic. Try
to plan your calls before you
begin your trip or attempt to
coincide your calls with times
you may be stopped at a stop
sign, red light or otherwise
stationary. But if you need to
dial while driving, follow this
simple tip — dial only a few
numbers, check the road and
your mirrors, then continue.
7. D
o not engage in stressful or
emotional conversations that
may be distracting. Stressful
or emotional conversations
and driving do not mix; they
are distracting and even
dangerous when you are
behind the wheel of a car.
Make people you are talking
with aware you are driving
and if necessary, suspend
conversations which have
the potential to divert your
attention from the road.
8. Use your wireless phone to
call for help. Your wireless
phone is one of the greatest
tools you can own to protect
yourself and your family in
dangerous situations — with
your phone at your side,
help is only three numbers
away. Dial 911 or other local
emergency number in the
case of fire, traffic accident,
road hazard or medical
emergency. Remember, it is
a free call on your wireless
9. Use your wireless phone to
help others in emergencies.
Your wireless phone provides
you a perfect opportunity to
be a “Good Samaritan” in your
community. If you see an auto
accident, crime in progress
or other serious emergency
where lives are in danger, call
911 or other local emergency
number, as you would want
others to do for you.
10. Call roadside assistance
or a special wireless
nonemergency assistance
number when necessary.
Certain situations you
encounter while driving
may require attention, but
are not urgent enough to
Safety Guidelines
merit a call for emergency
services. But you can still
use your wireless phone to
lend a hand. If you see a
broken-down vehicle posing
no serious hazard, a broken
traffic signal, a minor traffic
accident where no one
appears injured or a vehicle.

Consumer Information
on SAR
(Specific Absorption
This Model Phone Meets the
Government’s Requirements
for Exposure to Radio Waves.
Your wireless phone is a radio
transmitter and receiver. It is
designed and manufactured not
to exceed the emission limits
for exposure to radiofrequency
(RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission
(FCC) 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 phones 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 phone 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
phone while operating can be
well below the maximum value.
Because the phone 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 phone 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
governmentadopted 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
model phone when tested for
use at the ear is 1.29 W/kg
and when worn on the body, as
described in this user’s manual,
is 0.71 W/kg.
(Body-worn measurements
differ among phones models,
depending upon available
accessories and FCC
requirements.) While there may
be differences between SAR
levels of various phones and at
various positions, they all meet
the government requirement for
safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an
Equipment Authorization for
this model phone with all
reported SAR levels evaluated
as in compliance with the FCC
RF emission guidelines. SAR
information on this model phone
is on file with the FCC and can
be found under the Display Grant
