Apply for modification certification of terminals for BOS digital radio

Description

In digital radio for public safety authorities and organizations (BOS), terminals from various manufacturers are used. To ensure that these terminals are compatible with all network components and with each other, only terminals certified by the Federal Agency for the Digital Radio of Public Safety Authorities and Organizations (BDBOS) may be used. To this end, the BDBOS has defined performance characteristics in the so-called interoperability guidelines (IOP guidelines) that all terminals must fulfill. Compliance with these defined performance features is confirmed by a corresponding certificate.

If you have significantly changed the hardware or software of your terminal device already certified for the BOS, you must apply to the BDBOS for a change certification if you produce or distribute the devices.

A change certification can take place for

  • Deactivation of interfaces or optional features
  • Activation or conversion of optional features
  • an adjustment required by the BDBOS, in particular to rectify safety deficiencies
  • an error correction

For the change certification, describe the change as comprehensively as possible and explain the technical effects associated with it. The BDBOS will evaluate your information and inform you

  • whether the requirements for change certification are met and
  • what scope of testing is necessary.

In the next step, you commission a competent test center to carry out the test in accordance with the test criteria specified by the BDBOS. You then send the BOS test report to the BDBOS as proof.

You can apply for a modification certification for several terminals. You can apply for a maximum of 4 modification certifications for each individual terminal device. Otherwise a new certification is necessary.

  • You must have access to the protected area of the BDBOS web portal.

If your registered office is outside the European Union or the European Economic Area:

  • Authorized recipient with an address within the European Union or the European Economic Area
  • You must submit the LM-END application attachment with your application.
  • You will then submit the BOS test report from a competent test center.
  • Objection
  • After an unsuccessful objection: Legal action before the administrative court

You can apply for the modification certification of terminal equipment online or by post.

  • You hand over two individual pieces of the terminal device to be certified to the BDBOS.
  • This step is not necessary if your terminal device is part of a radio control center.

Apply for change certification of terminal devices online:

  • Call up the online application on the federal portal verwaltung.bund.de. This will guide you step by step through the necessary information, which you can enter electronically.
    • Note: You will need an ELSTER organization account for the online application.
  • The BDBOS will review your changes and inform you of the scope of the audit.
  • You commission a competent test center to test the terminal device according to the criteria specified by the BDBOS.
  • You send the BOS test report
    • via the upload function of the online application or
    • by post

to the BDBOS.

  • The BDBOS will send you
    • the certificate or
    • a notice of rejection.
  • The BDBOS will send you the notification of fees.
  • You pay the fees.

Apply for change certification of terminal equipment by post:

  • Download the form "Change certification of terminal equipment" from the BDBOS website.
  • Complete and sign the form and send it to the BDBOS certification office.
  • The BDBOS will assess your modifications and inform you of the scope of the test.
  • You commission a competent test center to test the terminal device according to the criteria specified by the BDBOS.
  • You send the BOS test report to the BDBOS.
  • The BDBOS sends you
    • the certificate or
    • a notice of rejection.
  • The BDBOS will send you the notification of fees.
  • You pay the fees.

An expert inspection body must be commissioned to inspect the terminal devices. The test center's expertise must be proven.
