Third Party RF Trigger/Receiver

Can the Speedlite 430EX III-RT be triggered by a third party RF trigger, and does it require a separate receiver to do it?

According to the Godox web site, the AD600 can be configured to work with Canon, Nikon, and other E-TTL RF systems.

The 430EX III-RT has a built-in Canon RT radio transceiver, so it does not need a separate receiver on its foot to be remotely triggered/controlled.  It only needs you to have a compatible transmitter on your camera hotshoe.  And there are a number of 3rd-party transmitters that are RT compatible that are not the Canon ST-E3-RT.

 

The Jinbei TR-Q7 (aka the Westcott FJ-X2m), Yongnuo YN-E3-RT, or Phottix Laso transmitters should all work.
