SAR Information to end users
THIS MOBILE PHONE MEETS INTERNATIONAL AND FCC REQUIREMENTS
FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the limits for
exposure to radio frequency (RF) recommended by international guidelines (ICNIRP). These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines
were developed by independent scientific organisations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The guidelines include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate,
or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using
standard operating 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 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, the
lower the power output of the phone.
The highest SAR value for this Philips 855 / CT 8558 model phone when tested for use at the ear is 0.586 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet
the relevant international guidelines for RF exposure.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the Federal Communications Commission RF
exposure guidelines when used with the Philips accessories supplied. Use of other accessories may not ensure
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. The SAR limit set by the Federal Communications Commission of
the U.S. Government is 1.6 W/kg.
The highest reported SAR values are: Head: 0.578W/kg; Body-worn 0.730W/kg.
