New Claims that iPhone Exceeds RF Limits

Posted on February 28th 2020

New tests conducted by RF Exposure Lab have found that the iPhone 11 Pro emits a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 3.8 W/kg. The FCC's exposure limit is 1.6 W/kg. 

This comes a few months after the Chicago Tribune hired RF Exposure Lab to conduct similar tests on a variety of popular cell phones. These tests--performed 2 mm from the "body" as well as the typical 5, 10, and 15 mm distances--claimed that RF exposure was well above the FCC's limits. In December of 2019, the FCC performed its own tests to determine if the phones in question did exceed RF exposure limits. According to those tests, they did not.

In August of 2019, the Chicago Tribune published an article entitled “,” an article that sparked a wild debate between the proponents and critics of the FCC’s current RF exposure limits for cell phones. Why? Because the Chicago Tribune reported that various cell phone models tested in their experiment emitted RF levels far above the FCC’s limits.

In May 2017, Canada’s Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) announced the decisions resulting from the consultation process in SMSE-002-17 entitled 。 Below are some of the main decisions:

  • Authorized use of higher power RLAN devices (HPODs), both indoor and outdoor, in the 5150-5250 MHz frequency band under a licensed regime.
  • Updated licensing application process means applications will be accepted from radiocommunication service providers and radiocommunication users as defined by the Radiocommunication Regulations, but will not be accepted from radiocommunication users who wish to operate HPODs for personal use。
  • Licensing will be on an “all-come all-served” basis, and all licenses will have equal access to the spectrum.
  • Licensing for spectrum licenses will be issued on a Tier 1 basis (i.e. Canada-wide), and will be given a one-year term.
  • No license fee will apply. Fees may be applied in the future should a fee be established following a consultation.


On March 31, 2017, South Africa’s ICASA published Government Gazette no. 40733, , to inform the industry of its regulatory position on the equipment type approval exemption as follows:

  • There are no upfront exemptions granted on the basis of types of equipment at this stage。
  • ICASA will develop a framework for the exemption of equipment operating under certain circumstances. ICASA has listed some such circumstances as follows:
    • systems and equipment used for the production and distribution of broadcast and content services
    • test and measurement equipment used by professionals and engineers of a licensed entity in the provision of telecommunications or broadcast services
    • satellite communications equipment
    • equipment for research and development in the laboratory environment
    • equipment for demonstrations of prototypes and testing
    • equipment for sample testing, demonstrations and field trials
    • equipment for demonstrations and exhibitions
    • equipment for operations of specialized agencies
    • equipment for maritime or aeronautical operations
    • radio telescope array and radio astronomy facilities
    • amateur radios for the purposes of self‑training, intercommunication and technical investigations carried out by amateurs on a non‑commercial basis
    • equipment used by government services for national security and defense networks
    • equipment produced or imported for purposes of exporting and not for use in South Africa
    • spare parts, components to be used for repairs, provided that such part is used in a certified product
  • ICASA will consider entering into and amending existing memoranda of understanding with other regulatory bodies, such as the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications。
  • ICASA will review its current type approval regulatory framework. The intention is to incorporate the circumstances under which mutual recognition agreements will be recognized, in a bid to improve market surveillance.

Vietnam - New Rules for Wireless Devices

Posted on February 28th 2020

Effective on February 14, 2017, Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) newly released Circular 46/2016/TT-BTTTT came into effect。  Please see below for important changes found in the new Circular:

  1. Output power limit for WLAN products operating in 2400 – 2483.5 MHz is increased from 100 mW to 200 mW.
  2. For UHF RFID, the band 920-925 MHz is changed to 918-923 MHz.*
  3. Wireless charging technology is permitted on the following frequency bands: 9 - 148.5 kHz, 326.5 kHz, 340 kHz, 6.765 - 6.795 MHz.
  4. 924-925 MHz is no longer available for Cordless Telephones.
  5. A new band of 4200-4800 MHz is allocated to ultra-wide band devices.
  6. New bands are allocated to frequency alerting and detecting devices.
  7. New bands are allocated to wireless audio devices for hearing assistance.
  8. New bands are allocated to Equipment Automatic Identification (AIS).
  9. New bands are allocated to Automatic identification equipment development report for search and rescue (AIS-SART).

All RFID products currently approved for and using the band 920-925 MHz are allowed to be continuously imported, distributed and used in Vietnam until the expiration dates of their respective Type Approval certificates。  There is no impact on existing Type Approval certificates issued based on current Circular 03。 For new applications, Type Approval certificates will be granted based on the Circular 46。

Korea - New Bands Opened

Posted on February 28th 2020

斗地主达人On September 30, 2016, MSIP released a notification stating 5650-5725MHz is opened for Wireless Access System and 5825-5850MHz is opened for Wireless Data Communication system in Korea。

So 5150-5350MHz, 5470-5725MHz and 5725-5850MHz are allowed for WLAN use now. In 5470-5725MHz, maximum bandwidth of 160MHz can be applied.

We were recently asked by a client if there is a limit on the number of radio devices that we may import for FCC compliance testing, industry trade shows, and evaluation/suitability for marketing。  Our reply, per 47CFR§2.1204 is as follows:

The FCC does limit the number, type, and conditions under which RF devices may be imported。 stipulates that RF devices can be imported in quantities of 4000 or fewer units for testing and evaluation to determinate compliance with the FCC rules and regulations, product development, or suitability for marketing。 stipulates that 200 or fewer RF devices designed solely for operation within one of the FCC’s authorized radio services for which an operating license is required to be issued by the FCC, or 10 or fewer units of all other products, can be imported for demonstration at industry trade shows. Both rules state that the devices will not be offered for sale or marketed.

If you require more than the FCC rules allow, you may request an import quantity waiver, per and .

An import quantity waiver request must be submitted well in advance of the import date and it must address 10 specific points that are detailed in 。 This document also provides important instructions for submitting the import waiver request via the FCC OET Knowledge Database (KDB) Inquiry System so that the waiver request is reviewed and processed most efficiently。
