Open Data Registration (Annex L of RDS Technical Specification R14/020_2)

Here you can download the registration procedure PDF forms to be returned to the RDS Forum Office

Every data application using the Open Data Applications (ODA) feature (see RDS specification, R14/020_2, section 6.1.4 / available in the Publications section of this web site) must be transmitted together with an Application Identification (AID) number (see section, 6.1.5.4). The AID number, for each ODA, is allocated by the RDS Registrations Office at the address shown in the following Registration Forms. Forms must be completed fully (every question must be answered - the RDS Registrations Office will advise, if difficulty is experienced) and sent to the RDS Registrations Office, together with the nominal fee of EUR 500, which is payable in advance. Subject to satisfactory completion, an AID number will be allocated and a copy of the Form will be returned to the applicant together with the confirmation of the AID allocation. Transmissions carrying an AID must adhere fully to the details, specifications and references of the relevant registration. (Any subsequent updates, that do not change the fundamental requirements for the transmission of that ODA, may allow continued use of the same AID, but advice should be sought from the RDS Registrations Office.) Details will be kept in the RDS Forum ODA Directory, which is be published on this web site, and an up-to-date version of the Directory will be maintained by the RDS Forum Office in Geneva, Switzerland.

Users of an AID must satisfy themselves as to the validity of using it and the accuracy of all related information and must accept all due consequence. The RDS Registrations Office is not liable for any incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use an AID, whether in transmission or reception equipment.
