Do you know how old the guidelines of Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) radiation levels of mobile devices are? They are almost 15 years old and FCC has not updated the guidelines after its release since 1996. The organization is currently re-examining its 15 year old safety limits of radiation levels for mobile devices.

Recently, FCC chairman Julius Genachowski has circulated a notice of inquiry. Because, it is important to know that whether the current standards need to be updated or whether the agency’s testing practices should be altered. Though FCC is not concerned about the current standards, the organization hopes to get comments from the public on the issue.

In recent years, there has been enough debate about the potential danger of radiation levels from mobile phones. Till now, there is an absence of a general consensus on whether the radiation is a really dangerous for human. If it is, what might be the acceptable levels.

A spokeswoman for the FCC named Tammy Sun said, “We are confident that, as set, the emissions guidelines for devices pose no risks to consumers . . . The United States has the most conservative emissions standards in the world. Our action today is a routine review of our standards. We hope and expect that other federal agencies and organizations with whom we work with on this issue will participate in the process.”
