The aim of this ongoing study was to evaluate the specific energy absorption rate (SAR) values in the body of a person present near-fixed readers of ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) passive tags incorporated in real-time locating systems (RTLS), operating at a frequency range of 865–868 MHz, considering various exposure scenarios. The modelled electromagnetic field (EMF) source was a rectangular microstrip antenna designed at resonance frequency in free space at 865 MHz. The SAR values in the body exposed to EMF 5 cm away from the UHF RFID readers need consideration with respect to general public exposure limits, when the radiated power exceeds 8 W.
