|Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Emblem|
In order to provide a simple, visual guide to identify RFID-enabled labels and tags, AIM developed the AIM RFID Emblem™ and submitted it to ISO for incorporation into an international standard – ISO/IEC 29160 (published in June 2012).
The RFID Emblem 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 developers.
ISO 29160 - RFID EMBLEM EXAMPLE
The RFID Emblem provides a visible identification method for 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.
This standard includes an RFID Index, a two-character code which can be included in the RFID Emblem graphic, which provides specific information about compliant tags and interrogator/encoders.
Successful reading of RFID tags requires knowledge of the frequency, protocol and data structure information provided by the RFID Index.
