Information technology - Radio frequency identification device performance test methods - Part 3: Test methods for tag performance (Adopted ISO/IEC 18046-3:2012, second edition, 2012-08-01)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 18046-3 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 18046-3:13 (adopted ISO/IEC 18046-3:2007). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 18046-3:2012 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This International Standard defines test methods for performance characteristics of RFID tags for item management, and specifies the general requirements and test requirements for tags which are applicable to the selection of the devices for an application. The summary of the test reports form a unified tag datasheet. It does not apply to testing in relation to regulatory or similar requirements.
