ISO/IEC 15961-2

Information technology -- Data protocol for radio frequency identification (RFID) for item management -- Part 2: Registration of RFID data constructs

ISO/IEC 15961-2:2010 specifies the procedural requirements to maintain specific radio frequency identification (RFID) data constructs. The data constructs are associated with managing open and closed applications that utilize RFID systems that are conforming 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 following:

  • 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.
