Dubai mobile emissions below global standards
Dubai, March 11, 2014
Dubai's mobile services including GSM, UMTS and LTE within the measured sites in the emirate have emission levels well below the guidelines laid down by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) for exposure, said a study.
The technical survey to measure mobile radiation levels across the emirates was done by the UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) based on its regulatory policy “Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Telecommunication Networks.”
Such field studies are regularly carried out by the TRA to affirm the commitment of national service providers with the safety standards set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and aligned with international best practices.
The survey measured radiation levels of 50 chosen base stations in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain and the Northern Emirates for both UAE licensed telecom operators to ensure that both the regulatory policy and the international ICNIRP standards are met as part of TRA’s commitment to ensuring the safety of citizens and residents across UAE.
The field survey covered populated facilities such as schools, hospitals, public parks and residential areas.-TradeArabia News Service
