There are indeed standards, for both cellphones and cell sites.

Find out more at the Vodafone site or on the Ministry of Health's National Radiation Laboratory site.

In brief (from the NRL):

Exposures from cellphones on sale in New Zealand all comply with limits recommended in the New Zealand Standard 2772.1:1999 Radiofrequency Fields Part 1: - Maximum exposure levels 3 kHz - 300 GHz. This Standard is based on international exposure guidelines published by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).  ICNIRP is composed of scientists working in government, universities and other independent research establishments, and is recognised by the World Health Organization for its expertise in this area.
