Consumer Goods and Retail SAR Regulations
Consumer protection has driven an increase in Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) testing and regulation.
SAR is a measure of the rate at which radio frequency (RF) energy is absorbed by the human body. Wireless terminals, such as GSM and GPRS, CDMA, WLAN, Bluetooth and WCDMA terminals, including cell phones emit radio frequency energy.
Our SAR laboratories provide SAR testing for all kinds of wireless terminals.
Strong electrical and magnetic radiation has been proven as harmful to human health. As a result many countries have introduced SAR levels which must be met in order to sell your product in their territory.
|Country/Area||SAR limit||SAR Regulation|
|USA & Canada||1.6 W/Kg_1 gram (Recommended)||Mandatory|
|Australia||2.0 W/Kg_10 gram (Recommended)||Mandatory|
|EU||2.0 W/Kg_10 gram (Recommended)||Mandatory|
|Japan||2.0 W/Kg_10 gram (Recommended)||Mandatory|
|Korea||1.6 W/Kg_1 gram||Mandatory|
|China||Report on request||Mandatory|
Most countries and regions have published RF exposure standards and regulations, including the SAR levels applicable to mobile telecommunications equipment. SAR testing is required for type approval of mobile phones in most countries. Failure to meet these regulations in one country/region limits access to the corresponding market.
Demonstrate your commitment to consumer safety with SAR testing from SGS.
