California Trying To Develop SAR Warning Requirements

Posted by Kallan Dahn Tuesday, May 11, 2010

The state of California has issued a proposed Law SB1212.  The law will require all cellular phone retailers to post the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate)data from all cellular phones sold in their locations to alert users to the potential safety hazards that may exist in wireless devices.  Currently cellular retailers already comply with laws in regard to the SAR rates on phones, and there are divisions of the FCC testing facilities that test SAR rates on phones to assure they meet the criteria.  The limit on SAR in the United States is 1.6, while the limit in Europe is 2.0.
