DMR - Trusted by 12 Million Users
Welcome to the DMR Association; we’re here for our members, working worldwide, to continuously reaffirm Digital Mobile Radio as the most widely used digital radio standard for the business world.
We began in 2005 as a group of market leading public mobile radio manufacturers to support ETSI during the DMR standardisation process.
The DMR Association’s Technical Working Group works constantly on the Interoperability process, providing standards certification for manufacturers, the majority of which is at the highest Tier 3 specification.
Membership is open to all organisations or individuals where DMR is a regular part of their business and for those working to support the professional use of the DMR standard in other ways.

By using a combination of education, awareness, certification and interoperability training we operate to make sure that business buyers of today’s digital radio technology have the security of knowing that they are investing in the future.
Here at the DMR Association we provide our membership with the resources necessary to make certain that DMR products reach the market within a successful, open, multi-vendor chain.
We’re in frequent and direct dialogue with regulators, trade bodies and standards organisations around the world to maintain the standard.
