Specific absorption rate (SAR) of mobile phone
◆ SAR certification information
This model phone FOMA F-04A meets the MIC's
exposure to radio waves.
The technical regulation established permitted levels of radio frequency energy,
based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations
through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The regulation
employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The
SAR limit is 2 watts/kilogram (W/kg)
averaged over 10 grams of tissue. The limit
includes a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health. The value of the limit is equal to the international
guidelines recommended by ICNIRP.
All phone models should be confirmed to comply with the regulation, before they
are available for sale to the public. The highest SAR value for this FOMA F-04A is
1.010 W/kg. It was taken by the Telecom Engineering Center (TELEC). The test for
SAR was conducted according to the MIC testing procedure using standard
operating positions with the phone transmitting at its highest permitted power level
in all tested frequency bands. While there may be differences between the SAR
levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the MIC's technical
regulation. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the
actual SAR of the phone during operation can be well below the maximum value.

The product "F-04A" is declared to conform with the essential requirements of
European Union Directive 1999/5/EC Radio and Telecommunications Terminal

The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/
Kg) averaged over ten grams of tissue, recommended by The Council of the
European Union. The limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to
give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in
Tests for SAR have been conducted using standard operation positions with
the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the 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. This is because the phone is designed to operate
at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the
network. In general, the closer you are to a base station antenna, the lower
the power output.
