a distance of 0.5 cm from your body. Ensure that the
device accessories, such as a device case and device
holster, are not composed of metal components. Keep the
device away from your body to meet the distance
Certification information (SAR)
This device meets guidelines for exposure to radio waves. 16
Your device is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver.
As recommended by international guidelines, the device is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio
waves. These guidelines were developed by the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP), an independent scientific
organization, and include safety measures designed to
ensure the safety of all users, regardless of age and
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of
measurement for the amount of radio frequency energy
absorbed by the body when using a device. The SAR
value is determined at the highest certified power level in
laboratory conditions, but the actual SAR level during
operation can be well below the value. This is because the
device is designed to use the minimum power required to
reach the network.
The SAR limit adopted by Europe is 2.0 W/kg averaged
over 10 grams of tissue, and the highest SAR value for
this device complies with this limit.
The highest SAR value reported for this device type when
tested in portable exposure conditions is 1.45 W/kg.
Hereby, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. declares that this
device is in compliance with the essential requirements
and other relevant provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC.
