Bluetooth Testing

Regulatory tests for products with Bluetooth technology

Many technical products are equipped with interfaces for Bluetooth. The use of this technology results in different test scenarios, which are necessary for certification and thus for the market launch of a device. Whether regulatory Bluetooth testing, which is indispensable for market approval, or test scenarios based on the specifications of the private certification regime Bluetooth SIG: We carry out all test options that are relevant for your product – reliably and target-oriented.

Regulatory requirements for Bluetooth products

Before a device with Bluetooth function is certified, the manufacturer has to select the exact technology. In the meantime, there are various variants of Bluetooth technology. Regulatory Bluetooth testing is required for all variants based on the certification regimes. The following is an example for the EU and the USA:

EU (CE) USA (FCC)
Bluetooth 2.x EN 300 328 FCC Part 15.247
Bluetooth 3.x
Bluetooth LE
Bluetooth 4.x
Bluetooth 5

 

However, such requirements do not only exist in Europe and the USA. In principle, the following applies to every radio technology: A marketing authorization in the target country is only possible if the requirements of the respective authority or institution are demonstrably complied with. If required, we can provide you with an overview of the requirements that your Bluetooth product must meet for approval in the desired markets.

The Bluetooth SIG certification

In addition to the regulatory approvals for Bluetooth products, approval in accordance with the requirements of the Bluetooth SIG is also required for market launch. Every device that wants to use the Bluetooth technology and the Bluetooth logo must pass the so-called “Bluetooth SIG Qualification Program”.

Only by passing this Bluetooth testing is the manufacturer officially authorized to use the Bluetooth technology and the associated Bluetooth trademark symbol, which is a worldwide quality seal for the compatibility of Bluetooth devices. If your product does not pass, we will support you – based on reliable results from the tests – in optimizing your device.
