DAB Tick Mark & Radio Equipment Directive Test Packages
The only UKAS accredited test lab in the UK
DAB Tick Mark Testing
With the launch of the Digital radio certification mark (“tick mark”), DTG Testing are currently the only UKAS accredited and DRUK approved test facility for carrying out DAB tick mark testing.
Radio Equipment Directive (RED) Testing
RED compliance is mandatory for products sold in the EU from June 13th 2017.
For broadcast radio receivers, products must meet requirements in ETSI EN 303 345 to demonstrate compliance.
DTG Testing is offering testing against EN 303 345 for as little as £100 when booked with a tick mark test.
For more information and to book a test please see below.
Prices and Test Options
DTG Testing are now offering two options for achieving DAB Tick Mark certification:
1) DAB tick mark against European-ready specification (includes new DLS requirements and minimum sensitivity measurements for all 38 Band III channels) - £750
2) DAB tick mark against European-ready specification (includes new DLS requirements and pass/fail results against targets for all 38 Band III channels) - £600
Both options can be used to achieve tick mark certification but option 1 will also highlight any margin between the pass/fail targets and the minimum sensitivity of the radio.
Our DAB test process is based upon the proposed minimum specifications announced by the Digital Radio Action Plan (DRAP) Technology and Equipment Group. We’ve been closely involved in the development of these specifications from the start and we’re committed to helping manufacturers through the test process quickly and efficiently.
Testing is confidential and a professional report is provided which can be used to demonstrate compliance and apply for digital radio certification.

Comprehensive Test Facilities
Our testing process uses a TESEQ GTEM 2000, allowing radiated RF testing on a wide range of product dimensions.
Test signals are played back via DTG Testing’s state of the art Rohde & Schwarz signal generation and measurement equipment which allows flexibility in the choice of frequency and signal level that can be tested.
All the equipment is calibrated to traceable standards:
- Testing is repeatable;
- Measurements can be verified against reference receivers; and
- Results are reliable.
