Title: 5G EMF assessment in Malaysia– Recent Development in Policy, Radiation Technology, and Measurement Methodology



The impending 5G roll-out in Malaysia will provide the public with better network throughput, coverage and reliability for new use cases. One of the reasons for the improvement in performance in 5G as compared to legacy technologies is the extensive use of beamforming in 5G. However, the same technology has raised concerns among citizens and government organizations about the effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health. The recently published Mandatory Standard and Technical Code on EMF provides the guideline to the operators on the requirement and method on the EMF assessment of the base stations. Especially in 5G, the EMF assessment is a prerequisite before the deployment, as to address any potential public concerns on the health effect that may be posed by the base stations.
