Sar

ISO 4217 code for the Saudi Arabian riyal. It became the official currency of the Kingdom at its establishment in 1932; it is the successor currency to the Hejaz riyal. Between 1986 and 2003, the riyal was pegged to Special Drawing Rights, but in practice, this was effectively a peg to the U.S. dollar. The peg was officially changed to the dollar in 2003 and has been in effect since (with the exception of a brief period toward the end of 2007). It is issued by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency.

From 1 April 2003, mobile phones type-approved in Hong Kong will have to comply with the Specific Absorption Rate limits of either the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) or the American National Standards Institute/Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (ANSI/IEEE).
The tests measured both the phones' specific absorption rate, which shows how much radiation goes into the head of the person using the mobile phone at full effect, and the outwards radiation of the phones when they are used.
