Mobile emissions in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain are compliant with International ICNIRP standards

March 10, 2014 1:37 pm

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has completed a technical survey that measures mobile radiation levels across the Emirates based on the TRA’s Regulatory Policy “Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Telecommunication Networks” dated June 21, 2010. The policy is in line with the guidelines laid down by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

The results revealed that mobile services including GSM, UMTS and LTE within the measured sites in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain have emission levels well below the international ICNIRP guidelines for exposure, including the levels of exposure for the general public and Non-Ionizing radiations. All recorded readings at all locations in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain were well within limits.

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.
