What is the 'SAR Tick'?

SAR Tick is part of an effort by mobile manufacturers within the Mobile Manufacturers Forum (MMF) to help consumers learn more about the SAR for their mobile phone or wireless device.

However, we also want consumers to be well informed about how to use and interpret SAR values. This website is one part of that effort, but in addition, manufacturers within the MMF will begin to include a SAR-Tick in user manuals in order to help conusmers quickly and easily identify SAR information and to know that their phone model has been tested for compliance with national and international standards.

When carrying the product or using it while worn on your body, either use an approved accessory such as a holster or otherwise maintain a distance of xx cm from the body to ensure compliance with RF exposure requirements. Note that the product may be transmitting even if you are not making a phone call.

This provides consumers with a clear statement of compliance with national and international exposure standards, while also offering guidance on where further information can be obtained.
