Information technology — Data protocol for radio frequency identification (RFID) for item management — Part 3: RFID data constructs (Adopted ISO/IEC 15961-3:2019, first edition, 2019-02)
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).
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 document specifies rules and code structures associated with the data constructs for RFID for item management. In particular, it:
— defines the application family identifier (AFI), including the range of code values that are available to use for RFID for item management;
— defines the data format, including the range of code values that are available to use for RFID for item management;
— describes the Object Identifier structure used for RFID for item management;
— specifies the function of the Object Identifier for the Unique Item Identifier (UII);
— specifies the function of the Object Identifier for other item attendant data.
NOTE Conventionally in International Standards, long numbers are separated by a space character as a thousands separator. This convention has not been followed in this document because the arcs of an Object Identifier are defined by a space separator (according to ISO/IEC 8824 and ISO/IEC 8825). As the correct representation of these arcs is vital to this document, all numeric values have no space separators except to denote a node between two arcs of an Object Identifier. For additional clarity, Object Identifiers are presented in bold text.
