(MENAFN Press) The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) launched a technical survey to measure mobile radiation levels across the Emirates based on the issued TRA's Regulatory Policy "Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Telecommunication Networks" dated 21st of June 2010 which is in line with the regulations laid down by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) . The initiative reflects the industry regulator's commitment to adopting world class best practices that comply with the ICNIRP regulations that includes the introduction of a policy that aims to determine safety levels of Non-Ionizing radiation for communication networks.

The survey will measure radiation levels of a chosen sample of 50 base stations for both UAE licenced telecom operators to ensure that both the regulatory policy and the ICNIRP international standards are met as part of TRA's commitment to ensuring the safety of citizens and residents across the UAE.

In this respect, H.E. Majed Almesmar, Deputy Director General for Telecommunications Sector in TRA, stated: "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," he added.

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.
