Human exposure to radio frequency fields from hand-held and body-mounted wireless communication devices – Human models, instrumentation, and procedures – Part 2: Procedure to determine the specific absorption rate (SAR) for wireless communication devices used in close proximity to the human body (frequency range of 30 MHz to 6 GHz)

This part of IEC 62209 series is applicable to any wireless communication device capable of
transmitting electromagnetic fields (EMF) intended to be used at a position near the human
body, in the manner described by the manufacturer, with the radiating part(s) of the device at
distances up to and including 200 mm from a human body, i.e. when held in the hand or in
front of the face, mounted on the body, combined with other transmitting or non-transmitting
devices or accessories (e.g. belt-clip, camera or Bluetooth add-on), or embedded in
garments. For transmitters used in close proximity to the human ear, the procedures of
IEC 62209-1:2005 are applicable.
This standard is applicable for radio frequency exposure in the frequency range of 30 MHz to
6 GHz, and may be used to measure simultaneous exposures from multiple radio sources
used in close proximity to human body. Definitions and evaluation procedures are provided for
the following general categories of device types: body-mounted, body-supported, desktop,
front-of-face, hand-held, laptop, limb-mounted, multi-band, push-to-talk, clothing-integrated.
The types of devices considered include but are not limited to mobile telephones, cordless
microphones, auxiliary broadcast devices and radio transmitters in personal computers.
This International Standard gives guidelines for a reproducible and conservative
measurement methodology for determining the compliance of wireless devices with the SAR
Because studies suggest that exclusion of features to represent a hand in human models
constitutes a conservative case scenario for SAR in the trunk and the head, a representation
of a hand is not included if the device is intended to be used next to the head or supported on
or near the torso [73], [80]. This standard does not apply for exposures from transmitting or
non-transmitting implanted medical devices. This standard does not apply for exposure from
devices at distances greater than 200 ...
