About the DMR Association

Welcome to the DMR Association; here to work at the centre of DMR - Digital Mobile Radio technology. We’re here for our members, working worldwide, to make Digital Mobile Radio the most widely supported digital radio standard for the twenty first century business world.

We began in 2005 as a group of leading public mobile radio manufacturers to support ETSI during the Digital Mobile Radio standardisation process.

Our membership is welcoming and open to all organisations or individuals where DMR is a consistent part of their business or for those working to support the professional use of the DMR standard in other ways.
