PRODUCT PACKAGE LABELS FOR ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS
USING BAR CODE AND TWO-DIMENSIONAL SYMBOLOGIES
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

1 Scope

This document applies to labels on the packaging of electronic components for automatic

handling in B2B processes. These labels use linear bar code and two-dimensional (2D)

symbols. Labels for direct product marking and shipping labels are excluded. Labels required

on the packaging of electronic components that are intended for the retail channel of

distribution in B2C processes are also excluded from this document.

Bar code and 2D symbol markings are used, in general, for automatic identification and

automatic handling of components in electronics assembly lines. Intended applications include

systems that automate the control of component packages during production, inventory and

distribution.

protection, structured alignment or for automated assembly
Note 1 to entry Typical examples are shown in Figure 4.

Note 2 to entry For the purposes of this document, the term “component package” includes a multiple of the

elements depicted in Figure 4, e.g. four reels in one box.
3.3
country of origin

manufacturing country where the product obtained its present identity as a part, subassembly,

or finished product

Note 1 to entry: The definition of “country of origin” should be in line with local regulations.

4 Label data content and requirements
4.1 Data elements – general

This document allows mutual agreements between the supplier and the customer to alter or

enhance any of the specifications done in this document.

The label format accommodates mandatory, optional and mutually agreed data elements.

Examples of data element short titles are given in Annex D.

This document does not supersede or replace any applicable safety or regulatory marking or

labelling requirements. This document is to be applied in addition to any other mandated

labelling requirements. The labelling requirements of this document and other documents may

be combined into one label or appear as separate labels.

Approval and conformity markings, branding elements and other information can be added

when applicable. Typically, these are not relevant for automatic processing, and therefore not

further outlined in this document.

The number included in the character count is exclusive of overhead characters such as start

and stop characters, data identifiers and any other characters required by a standard

symbology specification for properly encoded data.
All data elements encoded in a machine-readable medium shall be preceded by the
appropriate ISO/IEC 15418 or ANSI MH10.8.2 Data Identifier.
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
– 8 – IEC 62090:2017 © IEC 2017

The manufacturer may add any data on the label. Additional linear bar codes or data elements

in the 2D symbol shall use the appropriate data identifiers.

If the optional data specified in 4.3 are indicated on the labels, they should be used as

described below.

Any further additional data or specific formats or anything else may mutually be agreed

between the supplier and the customer. Mutual agreements between trading partners are not

restricted by this document.

Data elements where global uniqueness is relevant shall follow the ISO/IEC 15459 series'

rules, or be combined with the ISO/IEC 15459 series' compliant company ID with data

identifier “18V” and be unique within the scope in this company.
4.2 Mandatory data elements
4.2.1 Manufacturer item identification – DI “1P” and “25P”
The manufacturer-assigned item identification is mandatory.

If “1P” is used, the conformity to the ISO/IEC 15459 series is achieved by its combination with

the globally unique company ID “18V”.
4.2.2 Customer product code – DI “P”

The customer product code is the code assigned to the product by the customer, and may be

transmitted together with the order.

NOTE Customer product codes on component packages are relatively widely adopted. But when manufacturing

on stock or selling via distributors, this information is not yet known.

Adding customer information on the label is subject to a purchase agreement between the supplier and the

customer. If there is no specific purchase agreement, it is up to the manufacturer to add this information or not.

4.2.3 Manufacturer identification – DI “18V” and “21V”

The manufacturer identification shall uniquely identify the manufacturer to which the

component is traceable.
“18V” is the default manufacturer identification.

In case the manufacturer’s organizational sub unit is required, e.g. to indicate a

manufacturing location, then DI “21V” is used in addition to “18V”. In case of mutual

agreement between trading partners, “21V” can be used instead of “18V”.

In human-readable form, the manufacturer identification is the full manufacturer name or its

logo. In machine-readable form, the manufacturer identification is assigned by a recognized

body that assigns company identification according to the ISO/IEC 15459 series.

The human-readable manufacturer identification and the machine-readable manufacturer

identification are different. It is recommended that there be a 1:1 relation between human-

readable and machine-readable manufacturer identification.
4.2.4 Quantity – DI “Q” and “7Q”

The quantity shall be the quantity in the package or container to which the label is affixed.

The default unit of measure for data identifier “Q” is “EACH” or “PIECES”.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
IEC 62090:2017 © IEC 2017 – 9 –

When a different unit of measure is required, as agreed between trading partners, data

identifier “7Q” shall be used with the quantity followed by two alphanumeric characters

representing the unit of measurement code defined in Annex D of ANSI MH10.8.2.

It is recommended to use the quantity with a unit of measure only if the unit is different from

“piece”.
