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 test the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) on telecommunications devices will begin.

SAR testing is required as one of the certification requirements for telecommunications devices. SAR testing will be implemented in stages, starting with handphone.

What is SAR Test?

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.

SAR testing is required when telecommunications devices are used at a distance of ≤20cm from the user’s body. The purpose of this test is related to the health of telecommunication device users.
