FCC proposes to maintain current Radio frequency Exposure for the Safety Standard

November 06, 2019

On August 8, 2019 – Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai
shared with his colleagues a proposal that would continue to ensure the health and safety
of workers and consumers of wireless technology. Following more than six years of public
input and review, the proposal would maintain the Commission’s existing radio frequency (RF)
exposure limits. The United States’ RF exposure limits for handheld devices are among the
most stringent in the world.

It will establish a uniform set of guidelines for ensuring compliance with the limits regardless of the service or technology, replacing the Commission’s current inconsistent patchwork of service-specific rules.

The draft item includes these main components:

  • Maintaining the current standard
  • Establishing uniform rules for determining compliance with RF standards
  • Formalizing the application of the existing standard to certain frequencies

The Commission proposes to seek comment on establishing rules formalizing its existing methods of determining compliance with the RF exposure standard for high-frequency devices.
