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 replaces CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 15961:05, Information Technology — Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) for Item Management — Data Protocol: Application Interface. At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 15961-2:2019 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 document specifies the procedural requirements to maintain specific RFID data constructs. The data constructs are associated with managing open and closed applications that utilise RFID systems which conform to the data protocol defined in other parts of ISO/IEC 15961 and ISO/IEC 15962, and the air interface protocols of ISO/IEC 18000.
It also outlines the obligations of the Registration Authority and the application administrators, with respect to:
— the allocation of AFIs to particular applications defined by the application administrator;
— the allocation of data formats to particular applications defined by the application administrator;
— the registration of Root-OIDs, compliant with ISO/IEC 9834-1, to any Unique Item Identifiers used in applications defined by the application administrator;
— the registration of Root-OIDs, compliant with ISO/IEC 9834-1, to any other data used in applications defined by the application administrator;
— the registration of various table-driven encoding schemes, compliant with ISO/IEC 15962.
