Bluetooth® testing just became better with the official acceptance of UL’s laboratory in Basingstoke, England, to test Bluetooth enabled devices up to the latest Bluetooth 5 standard. Basingstoke joins UL’s global network of laboratories in Europe, North America and Asia to provide Bluetooth standardized testing and reports to help launch products across the globe.

For more than 20 years, UL has been a leading member of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). Bluetooth testing gives customers confidence their products comply with Bluetooth SIG specifications. UL has Bluetooth Qualification Consultants, engineers who have met specific requirements from Bluetooth SIG, in Asia, Europe and North America.

Customers looking for assistance in submitting their products for Bluetooth qualification can receive further guidance from one of our Bluetooth Qualification Consultants, who can provide tips to help avoid mistakes during the qualification process, saving manufacturers time and money. 

UL is recognized around the world for its quality and integrity as a third-party organization. As a recognized Bluetooth Qualified Testing Facility (BQTF), Bluetooth SIG recognizes UL’s testing results. Customers can use the report provided to them to list their products on the Bluetooth SIG website.

Bluetooth technology is included in new smartphones, tablets and personal computers. It has become the standard for personal wireless connections and continues to expand its use cases. After first addressing audio streaming, the technology has broadened into low-power data transfer and, more recently, into location services and large-scale device network solutions.

Why risk a slow or faulty qualification process? UL can provide knowledge and tools that may help you today.
