Exploring Mobile Phone Radiation Policies in Southeast Asia 

As the mobile phone landscape evolves, understanding radiation policies is crucial. Let's delve into Southeast Asia's approach.


 Striking a balance, Thailand's NTC (National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission) sets SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) limits at 1.6 W/kg, aligning with international standards [source: NTC].


MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) emphasizes transparency. SAR limits are 2.0 W/kg, guided by WHO recommendations [source: MCMC].


Vigilant, Vietnam adheres to SAR limits of 1.6 W/kg, prioritizing public health [source: MIC Vietnam].


Reflecting global standards, Indonesia's SDPPI (Directorate General of Resources and Equipment for Post and Information Technology) follows SAR limits of 2.0 W/kg [source: SDPPI].


The IDA (Infocomm Development Authority) enforces SAR limits at 1.6 W/kg, keeping pace with international guidelines [source: IDA].

By shedding light on these policies, we foster informed discussions on the intersection of technology and public health. Let's continue to monitor and adapt policies for a connected future.
