5G Safety Evaluation

Expertise & Infrastructure

IT'IS is at the forefront of the development of 5G with respect to both dosimetry and regulation, and supports industry partners in ensuring compliance early on, preventing costly changes down the road. IT'IS also leads an international consortium of investigators to determine the real RF hazards and real biologically-relevant exposure limits for this range of frequencies, and to develop new tissue models to address exposure in the millimeter wave range.

The group's exposure assessment laboratories are equipped with the most advanced tools including the latest DASY8 with Modules APD and mmWave, and a wide range of specialized probes including the pseudo-vector EUAPD and EUmmW probes.

Solutions Beyond State-of-the-Art

As many of the current exposure standards above 6 GHz are unnecessarily conservative (i.e., overestimating the risks and thereby hindering technology unnecessarily) and - most importantly - incomplete, the IT'IS Foundation is committed to expanding its activities collectively with potential partners. We support our partners through the entire development process, from device design to regulatory approval, including measurements, simulations, reporting, and communication with regulatory bodies.



We look forward to discussing with you how we can best support your R&D initiatives and regulatory submissions – simply call us at +41 44 245 96 96 or send us an email at customized@itis.swiss.
