The DTEB database is now also accessible to non-governmental users. Interested stakeholders of the defence industry, research centres or academic institutions have the possibility to submit a request for an account, which, after approval from national DTEB administrators, will grant them a customised access to a selection of DTEB records which might be useful for their activities.

Furthermore, non-governmental test centres have the possibility to propose to the national DTEB administrators the publication of their own T&E capabilities, if deemed relevant for defence purposes.

The inclusion of non-governmental T&E capabilities into the DTEB will further integrate and complement the defence T&E landscape in Europe.
