Recently, many of our customers got in trouble in Bluetooth Trade Mark & Brand issues. The discrepancy of having the products legally Bluetooth Mark listed or lack of the Bluetooth Mark on products may result in lawsuit or bar of trading in the board between countries or markets due to the violation of Trade Mark & Brand Policy by SIG (the Bluetooth Organization)
According to the regulation activated in 2014/2/1, every brand needs to have unique Declaration ID (known as DID) for every individual product. Product is no longer can be free EPL (End Product Listing) listed under other company's QDID. Moreover, SIG recently launched the website for easy reporting the violation makes the report become a fashion.
Cost to purchased Declaration ID is heavy. (US$8,000 for Adapter Member and US$4,000 for Associate Member)
BQB testing cost, says around US$7,000, makes this even much harder and let most customers curb the decision to Bluetooth logo compliance.
For customer who is making products built by Raytac Module, please do contact us for more detail to proceed the application.

That is, we will transfer our module under our customer's brand, and we are the only vendor in the market willing to do so.
