Information technology -- Automatic identification and data capture techniques -- Unique identification

ISO/IEC 15459-2:2015 specifies the procedural requirements to maintain identities and outlines the obligations of the Registration Authority and Issuing Agencies. ISO/IEC 15459-2:2015 excludes those entities where ISO has designated Maintenance Agencies or Registration Authorities to provide identity and/or identifier schemes. It does not apply to: freight containers, because their unique coding is specified in ISO 6346, Freight containers - Coding, identification and marking; vehicles, because their unique identification is specified in ISO 3779, Road vehicles - Vehicle identification number (VIN) - Content and structure; car radios, because their unique identification is specified in ISO 10486, Passenger cars - Car radio identification number (CRIN). The exclusion also applies to ISO 2108, Information and documentation - International standard book number (ISBN), and ISO 3297, Information and documentation - International standard serial number (ISSN).

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are

members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical

committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical

activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the

work. In the field of information technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee,

ISO/IEC JTC 1.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

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

Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction

and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity

assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical Barriers

to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee

SC 31, Automatic identification and data capture techniques.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO/IEC 15459-2:2006), which has been

technically revised.

ISO/IEC 15459 consists of the following parts (as a result of the reconstruction of previously published

parts 1 to 8), under the general title Information technology — Automatic identification and data capture

techniques — Unique identification:
— Part 1: Individual transport units
— Part 2: Registration procedures
— Part 3: Common rules
— Part 4: Individual products and product packages
— Part 5: Individual returnable transport items (RTIs)
— Part 6: Groupings

Introduction

Unique identification can occur at many different levels, at item level, on the transport unit, on the

returnable transport item, at grouping levels, and elsewhere. Such entities are often handled by several

parties, both public and private, throughout their lifecycle. Each of these parties must be able to identify

and trace such distinct entities so that reference can be made to associated information such as quality

inspection data, the chemical substance contained, the batch or lot number of parts, components or raw

materials, etc.

The associated information is typically held in some kind of database. The information can be accessed

using EDI exchange or another appropriate access protocol, e.g. a directory access protocol.

There are considerable benefits if the identity of the entity is represented as a bar code or other AIDC

(Automatic Identification and Data Capture) media and attached to, or made a constituent part of, that

which is being uniquely identified so that:
— it can be read electronically, thus minimizing errors;
— one identity can be used by all parties;

— each party can use the identity to look up its computer files to find the data associated with the entity.

All AIDC technologies have the potential to encode an identity. It is expected that application standards,

using various automatic identification technologies, will be developed based upon the identity as a prime

key. These application standards, which can include additional rules for which level of identification

should be used, are often made available from the Issuing Agency.

The procedures and obligations needed to construct an identity to achieve unique identification of an

entity are defined in this part of ISO/IEC 15459.
