P62704-1 - IEC/IEEE Draft Standard for Determining the Peak Spatial Average Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in the Human Body from Wireless Communications Devices, 30 MHz - 6 GHz. Part 1: General Requirements for using the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Method for SAR Calculations

The scope of this standard is to define the methodology for the application of the finite difference time domain (FDTD) technique when used for determining the peak spatial-average specific absorption rate (SAR) in the human body exposed to wireless communication devices with known uncertainty. It defines methods to validate the numerical model of the device under test (DUT) and to assess its uncertainty when used in SAR simulations. Moreover, it defines procedures to determine the peak spatial average SAR in a cubical volume and to validate the correct implementation of the FDTD simulation software. This document will not recommend specific SAR limits since these are found elsewhere, e.g., in the guidelines published by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) or in IEEE C95.1.
