What is the Digital Tick Mark?

Intertek Hong Kong is the only testing laboratory in Asia accredited by UKAS and recognized by Digital Radio UK to perform the Digital Radio Certification (“Tick”) mark tests.
For your digital audio broadcasting (DAB) products, we can offer:

  • Walk-in Test
  • Pre-Test
  • Full Certification Services

The Digital Tick Mark identifies and gives greater assurance to consumers that the DAB digital radio products and services they are buying are future-ready and will enable them to receive the available DAB, DAB+ and FM radio stations.


To be granted the use of Digital Tick Mark, manufacturers must have their products tested in advance to meet the minimum specification.

DAB Radio Products

The following product types are eligible for the Digital Tick Mark:

  • DAB receivers (domestic and in-vehicle)
  • Hifis with DAB (domestic)
  • DAB head units (in-vehicle)
  • DAB adapters (in-vehicle and domestic)
  • New vehicles (in-vehicle)

When used on digital radio equipment, the Digital Tick Mark certifies that “this radio is future-ready and can receive the available DAB, DAB+ and FM radio stations.”

Visibility of the Mark

The Digital Tick Mark can appear at retailer point of sale, on packaging, online and on other marketing materials. Use of the mark will be granted on approval from Digital Radio UK.

Approved Test House

Receiver manufacturers are advised to carry out the Per Product Test in an approved test house by Digital Radio UK.
If receivers applying for use of the Digital Tick Mark have not been tested in an approved test house then Digital Radio UK reserves the right to ask the manufacturer to carry out further testing. For example, it will ask for pictures of the testing facility and details of the equipment used.
