BS ISO 17364:2009 Supply chain applications of RFID. Returnable transport items (RTIs)

BS ISO 17364 defines the basic features of RFID (radio frequency identification,)for the use in the supply chain when applied to returnable transport items. In particular it:

  • Provides specifications for the identification of the RTI
  • Makes recommendations about additional information on the RFtag
  • Specifies the semantics and data syntax to be used
  • Specifies the data protocol to be used to interface with business applications and the RFID system
  • Specifies the minimum performance requirements
  • Specifies the air interface standards between the RF interrogator and RRF tag
  • Specifies the reuse and recyclability of the RF tag.

The supply chain is a multi-level concept that covers all aspects of taking a product from raw materials to a final product including shipping to a final place of sale, use and maintenance and potentially disposal. Each of these levels covers many aspects of dealing with products and the business process for each level is both unique and overlapping with other levels.

BS ISO 17364 is the standard that has been created in order to ensure compatibility at the physical, command and data levels with the four other Standards under the general title: Supply chain applications of RFID. Where possible, this compatibility takes the form of interchangeability. Where interchangeability is not feasible, the Standards within this suite are interoperable and non-interfering. The Standards within the complete series of supply chain applications of RFID include

These Standards define the technical aspects and data hierarchy of information required in each layer of the supply chain. The air-interface and communications protocol standards supported within the supply chain applications of RFID Standards are ISO/IEC 18000; commands and messages are specified by ISO/IEC 15961 and ISO/IEC 15962; semantics are defined in ISO/IEC 15418; syntax is defined in ISO/IEC 15434.
