World Wide SAR Test Standards.

RF Exposure Lab is a worldwide leader in SAR testing standards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The SAR testing requirement is being added to many countries around the world. Numerous other countries are in the process of evaluating the need to add SAR testing to their requirement. The following is a list of the standards for SAR testing at present.
