    Do I need to register separately with the Bluetooth SIG to use the Bluetooth logo in my product?

      You will need to be a Member

       

      You will then need to purchase a Declaration ID.

       

      The cost is $4k for Associate Members and $8k for Adopter Members. There also may be a SIG incentive if you have not filed any listings or EPL’s that they can verify. Typically, you will fill out paperwork and be given 2 discounted Declaration ID’s.

      Once you have a Declaration ID, you can begin the listing process. You will either engage in further qualification/testing (for example if our listing was a Component type) and obtain your own QDID/TPG reference ID, or you will reference one of ours if you have made no changes and it is a Subsystem/End Product type that we listed.

       

      Either way, you will sign a DoC (Declaration of Compliance) and then be considered done with qualification.


      Once you have that reference you can begin associating products with descriptions and pictures linked to the qualified Bluetooth portion under your Declaration ID.

       

      Note that when defining this process, we have made the assumption that there will be further modification by customers and that they may want to add support that is available when you have integrated sensors, which we don’t have when we qualify the embedded BCM2073XS devices. Most of our listings are Component type which means some testing is required for the profiles.

       

      There are multiple listing scenarios and flows available on the Sig website. The one that resembles the process described above is included below and displays Company B using Company A’s Component to create an End Product.  Company B then creates a Declaration Listing and a Product listing for that end product.

      Note that QDID 51750 (End Product) is the correct one to use for the BCM20737 and the others in this family (BT 4.0)

       

      QDID 61027 can be leveraged for BT 4.1 (Component).

       

      There is additional training documentation on this process available here on the Sig's website: https://www.bluetooth.org/en-us/test-qualification/qualification-overview


      The documents are at the bottom of the webpage under the section "Document Library".
