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.
