As far as microwave ovens are concerned, the UAE has passed a law that will ensure these products are safe for the consumers.  

Harmful radiation tends to escape from the microwave in a variety of situations such as

  • door seals being contaminated by food residues, 
  • objects caught between oven door and oven front face, 
  • damaged viewing window, or when the door is damaged.  
  • Harmful radiation also escapes if the door does not close properly, if it is bent and if its hinges and latches are broken or loosened.
