This International Standard defines the basic features of RFID for use in the supply chain when applied to returnable transport items (RTIs). In particular it
— provides specifications for the identification of the RTI and the returnable packaging item (RPI),
— makes recommendations about additional information on the RF tag,
— 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 RF tag, and
— specifies the reuse and recyclability of the RF tag.
