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


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 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
