Mobile radiation emissions compliant with International ICNIRP standards

DUBAI: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, TRA, has completed a technical survey that measures mobile radiation levels across the Emirates based on the TRA’s Regulatory Policy, “Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Telecommunication Networks” dated June 21, 2010, in line with the regulations laid down by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

The results revealed that mobile services, including GSM, UMTS and LTE, within the measured regions in Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah, have emission levels well below the international ICNIRP guidelines for exposure, including levels of exposure for the general public from non-ionizing radiation. All recorded readings at all locations in those emirates were well within limits.

Such field studies are regularly carried out by the TRA to affirm the commitment of national service providers with safety standards set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and aligned with international best practices.

The survey measured radiation levels at 50 chosen base stations for U.A.E. licensed telecom operators to ensure that both the regulatory policy and the international ICNIRP standards are met as part of the TRA’s commitment to ensuring the safety of citizens and residents across the U.A.E..
