DMR - Trusted by 12 Million Users

Welcome to the DMR Association; we are at the core of Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) technology. We operate globally on behalf of our members to ensure that DMR is the best supported digital radio standard for twenty first century business.

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.
