Draft Procedure for Assessing Radio Frequency Exposure of Devices in the 60 GHz Band

The Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) of Canada sets general test methods to be followed when carrying out an RF exposure compliance assessment of portable devices operating in the 60 GHz frequency band (57 GHz – 71 GHz).

The procedures cover the requirements to determine the power density (basic restrictions and reference levels); however, it does not cover requirements that are based on specific absorption rate (SAR) for the frequency range from 100 kHz to 6 GHz and/or E-field and H-field to protect against nerve stimulation for the frequency range from 3 kHz to 10 MHz.

A full compliance assessment of a device under test (DUT), including other transmitters within the device, must consider all exposure limits and requirements set forth in RSS-102

The full draft of these supplementary procedures for assessing radio frequency exposure compliance of portable devices in the 60 GHz frequency band can be found here.
