Tiempo estimado de lectura: 37 segundos

In order to protect the public from possible losses due to the use of telecommunication equipment, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kemkominfo) through the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology (Ditjen SDPPI) will impose an obligation to test the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) level as a requirement for​ telecommunication device certificates for cellular telecommunication devices and tablet computers used in Indonesia. SAR is a unit to measure the amount of electromagnetic radiation absorbed by the human body when using telecommunication devices. The SAR level needs to be ensured so that it does not exceed the safe limit value in order to keep mobile telecommunications devices and tablet computers used in Indonesia safe for the public and do not adversely affect health. To support this, the Decree of the Minister of Communication and Information Technology Number 177 of 2024 concerning Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Limits on Mobile Telecommunication Devices and Tablet Computers on March 7 has been stipulated.​ Every application for telecommunication device certificates for cellular telecommunication devices and tablet computers must meet the provisions of the SAR restrictions as stated in the Decree Number 177 of 2024, starting from April 1, 2024 for head testing and August 1, 2024 for torso and limb testing. ​
