Dear Valued Customer, Based on information through a notification letter sent by the Directorate General of SDPPI, that at the end of 2023 the obligation to Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) / SAR Testing on telecommunications devices will begin.

The SAR testing will be conducted in stages, beginning with handphones.

What is SAR Testing?

SAR testing is a test to measure the intake of radio frequency electromagnetic field energy absorbed by the human body from telecommunications devices. The unit used is watt/kg.

You must conduct testing when using telecommunications devices at a distance of ≤20cm from the user’s body. The purpose of this test is related to the health of telecommunication device users.
