Publication of SPR-APD, (Issue 1)
This is to advise you that Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) has published the following document:
- Supplementary Procedure SPR-APD, (Issue 1) for assessing Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) and Absorbed Power Density (APD) compliance of portable devices in the 6 GHz Band (5925-7125 MHz).
SPR-APD describes the technical requirements and processes to be followed when demonstrating compliance with specific absorption rate (SAR) limits and absorbed power density (APD) limits for portable devices operating in the 6 GHz band (e.g. radio local area network (RLAN) device in the 5925- 7125 MHz).
The following documents, found on ISED's Acceptable knowledge database, other supplementary procedures and notices page were updated to include the fields required to capture the APD data:
Annex A1:SAR and LPD Technical Brief Cover Sheet
Annex A2:RF Exposure Evaluation and NS Technical Brief Cover Sheet
With the publication of SPR-APD issue 1, test laboratories will no longer need to submit pre-approval requests to the Certification and Engineering Bureau before applying the SPR-APD test procedures.
