dPMR Association Warns of Unauthorized Use of Trademark
Monday, July 03, 2017 | Comments

The Digital Private Mobile Radio (dPMR) Association said it has become aware of several two-way radio equipment manufacturers who have been using the dPMR trademark and logo with their products without authorization and passing the products off as compliant with European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) conformance and interoperability standards.

After investigating, the dPMR Association determined that the unauthorized products are being offered on online auction sites and other e-commerce portals, which is not only a breach of the trademark but also poses risks to users, a statement said.

The companies found to be infringing the trademark included:
• Beifeng Telecom Technology, marketed as BFDX
• Shenzhen Inrico Electronics, marketed as Inrico
• Fujian Nanan Quansheng Electronics, marketed as Quansheng
• Quanzhou IWK Industry, marketed as iwalkie

“The authorized use of the dPMR trademark serves as an assurance to users that equipment conforms to the ETSI standard and will interoperate with other equipment with the same marking,” dPMR Association Chairman Pete Hizzey said. “The current products offered for sale from manufacturers, which are not members of the dPMR Association, will not have been tested to the satisfaction of the dPMR Association Technical Working Group, and it is highly unlikely that these products would meet ETSI standards or offer interoperability with other genuine dPMR marked equipment in any of the dPMR product classes.”

Hizzey advised anyone concerned about a product or equipment being offered for sale as dPMR compliant to email secretary@dpmrassociation.org for clarification.
