In response to requests for more information about the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of mobile phone handsets, the Mobile Manufacturers Forum has developed a program to increase awareness of SAR information for the benefit of consumers.
The original program commenced in 2001with member manufacturers including SAR information in user guides and on company websites.
While this information is still provided, we are extending the range of information provided as a result of a new international testing standard for devices used close to the body. In addition, we are introducing a 'SAR-Tick' in order to help consumers readily identify SAR information and know that their phone model has been tested for compliance with national and international standards.
Finally, this website has been developed to help provide additional information on SAR and to help answer any questions that you may have on the issue.
