Join the LPRA, a powerful voice for the SRD Industry

join LPRA7

If you are involved in the use or supply of low power radio equipment or services, becoming a member of the LPRA will provide you with valuable benefits in a number of areas:                  

 

 

  • Active involvement in the European Standards and Regulations process.
  • Advance notification of impending changes to European Union legislation affecting the low power radio industry.
  • Access to key decision makers in European and European national administrations.
  • Opportunities to promote your products and services to a broad range of potential customers through the LPRA website and other LPRA activities.
  • Participation in sector focussed industry groups lobbying for common objectives.

All these features represent membership benefits, of which probably the most important are our involvement in the Standards and Regulations process and your ability to promote your company and its products through the LPRA web site.

Our Mission...

This is a dynamic time for the low power radio industry

Protect your business today!
Join the LPRA and add your voice to those already speaking collectively to protect and grow the industry.

  • A mushrooming range of diverse applications are competing for scarce spectrum at the same time as national administrations are seeking to increase revenues by selling more and more spectrum.
  • A move towards “technology neutrality” is forcing disparate applications to co-exist within the same frequency allocations.
  • A wide range of new technologies, such as UWB, are also approaching maturity further increasing the pressure on spectrum and raising questions of compatibility and interoperability.
  • The question of harmonisation, both within Europe and ultimately globally is being actively debated.


These issues can all have a dramatic impact on your business viability; early visibility of a new opportunity could bring enormous benefit whilst ignorance of an impending change could be disastrous.

Read here why you should join the LPRA.

The LPRA is guided by an annually elected Board of members elected by their peers. Members of the Board, drawn from across Europe, have extensive experience in their own industry sectors as well as in leading Standards development and participating in legislative negotiations. The LPRA regularly consults with many influential committees and organisations, such as SRD-MG, TCAM, ETSI etc. to ensure members' views are fully considered in this complex process.
