NEWS: SAR Value Surveillance on Markets

SAR value surveillance on markets

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measure which explains how much radio frequency energy is absorbed by the user’s or bystander’s body or head. SAR testing is required for the devices that are used closer than 20 cm to the human head or body and exceed certain power thresholds.

There are international and regional limits for SAR exposure. It is important to make sure the devices on consumer markets are up to the same SAR standards as they are during the certification process. Different authorities around the world supervise markets and supervise that all products comply with the required standards set.

Why is SAR testing important?

The RF radiation of all wireless devices must be evaluated to ensure a safe and reliable use of radio devices. There are international and regional RF exposure requirements that are defined based on scientifically established health effects. RF exposure testing or calculations must be performed to ensure that the RF exposure characteristics of the device are within the required safety limits.

Our SAR test laboratories are no. T287 FINAS SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by Finnish Accreditation Service (FINAS) which is a signatory to the ILAC MRA. We have the capability to perform SAR testing for example for CE, FCC and ISED certifications.
