Bluetooth® Testing

Stay Connected with Bluetooth® Testing

Procedure

Bluetooth® tests are classified according to category A, B, C, or D. Varied information is required for each project step:

  1. Submission of first set of documents, necessary before preparation of the test plan
  2. Submission of second set of documents, necessary before testing starts
  3. Submission of final set of documents, necessary for completion of the compliance folder

Requirements

To acquire the right to use the Bluetooth® wireless technology and claim certification, your product is required to be tested and assessed according to the Bluetooth Qualification Program established by the Bluetooth SIG.

The most important prerequisite to any qualification and listing is for a company to be a Bluetooth “Promoter,” “Adopter,” or “Associate” member. The related adopters or associate agreements need to be up-to-date.

An overview of procedures related to Bluetooth testing and listing projects is available through TÜV Rheinland. It is not designed to amend or replace officially published information from Bluetooth SIG, such as, but not limited to, the Licensing and Trademark regulations published in the Bluetooth Brand Book.
