Mobile radiation survey to be carried out by TRA [Seven Days (United Arab Emirates)]
(Seven Days (United Arab Emirates) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) is to measure mobile radiation levels across the UAE.
The survey will measure radiation levels of 50 base stations for both UAE licensed telecom operators to ensure International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) international standards are met as part of TRA’s commitment to ensuring the safety of UAE residents.
Majed Almesmar, Deputy Director General for Telecommunications Sector at the TRA, said: "We launched this survey to ensure that emissions from the communications sites comply with the general public exposure limits set down by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection.
"We are set on applying the best proactive measures and regulations and policies to make absolutely sure that radiation exposure does not exceed the rates adopted internationally. The results of the survey will be announced by end of December upon completion of the project."
Saif bin Ghelaita, Director Technology Development Affairs in TRA, said: "TRA will continue using regulations in hand to ensure that the radiation levels are within the safe international limits. We chose to check over 50 base stations which were strategically placed close to schools, hospitals, residential and public areas to ensure public safety in the UAE."
