ISO/IEC 29160-Information technology — Radio frequency identification for item management — RFID Emblem
This International Standard specifies the design and use of the RFID Emblem:
an easily identified visual guide that indicates the presence of radio frequency
identification (RFID). It does not address location of the RFID Emblem on a
label. Specific placement requirements are left to application standards
It also specifies an RFID Index, which can be included in the RFID Emblem and
which addresses the complication added by the wide range of RFID tags
(frequency, protocol and data structure). The RFID Index is a two-character code
that provides specific information about compliant tags and interrogators.
Successful reading of RFID tags requires knowledge of the frequency, protocol
and data structure information provided by the RFID Index.
The RFID Emblem provides a visible identification of RFID transponders,
interrogators, and tagged items. Visible signs inform consumers whether an item
or product contains an RFID tag. Therefore, this meets one of the main
requirements for consumer privacy protection.
The RFID Emblem is a public-domain object intended to augment rather than
replace other emblems and logos such as recycling and CE. The RFID Emblem
requires no fee for use nor does it have any membership or other use restriction
or requirement, other than compliance with this International Standard.
