Title: Item Unique Identification IUID Coming of Age Internationally

Item Unique Identification (IUID) Coming of Age
  • Mr. Robert Leibrandt
  • Office of the Under Secretary of Defense
  • UID Policy Office

IUID RFID Policy Relationship
RFID tags that carry data are required to be
attached to packages at multiple levels,
including item packages, cases, and pallets.
Unique Identifiers are required to be attached or
directly marked on items using a data matrix to
carry the UII data elements.
IUID Incorporation in Package Identification

International IUID Requirements IUID is NOT just
a US DoD Mandate
  • ISO 15459 Set the framework internationally
  • US DoD requires Item Unique Identification
  • Air Transport Association Spec 2000 Equivalent
    enables commercial aviation
  • DoD Recognized IUID Equivalents (VIN, ESN, GIAS,
    GRAI-when serialized) must meet IUID marking
    requirements (i.e., IUID compliant ECC200 2D Data
  • NATO
  • STANAG 2290 UID of Items 15 nations Ratified
    Dec 2007
  • Life Cycle Management Policy in NATO
  • AC327 UID Policy Working Group Established Jan
    25, 2008
  • 7 nations, industry, plus organization under both
    SNLC and CNAD supporting the work
  • Non-US national policies and implementations are

What is the UII?
2 Dimensional Data Matrix
Data formatted using ISO 15434 (Data Identifier

Enterprise Identifier
Original Part Number
Serial Number
  • Open Standard (ISO 15434)
  • Air Transport Association
  • GS1
  • ANSI MH10
  • Minimum globally unique data set
  • Enterprise Identifier
  • Part, Lot, or Batch
  • Serial
  • Or IUID Equivalent

IUID Equivalents
  • Criteria for UID Equivalents
  • Must contain an enterprise identifier which is
    assigned by a registration or controlling
  • Must uniquely identify an individual item within
    an enterprise identifier, product or part number
  • Must have an existing Data Identifier (DI) or
    Application Identifier (AI) listed in ANSI MH10,
    Data Identifier and Application Identifier
  • DoD Recognized UID Equivalents
  • Global Individual Asset Identifier (GIAI) EAN.UCC
  • Serialized Global Returnable Asset Identifier
    (GRAI) EAN.UCC (AI 8003)
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) ISO 3779
  • Electronic Serial Number (ESN, for cellular
    telephones only) TIA (DI22S)
  • Note UID Equivalents Must be Properly Encoded
    in an ECC200 Data Matrix Symbol

What is on the horizon?
  • Automatic data capture becomes the norm across
    the enterprise
  • Speed of data capture
  • Confidence in data quality yields confidence in
  • UII as the data key
  • Information on the item is backup to master data
  • Information from master data sources used to
    inform intelligent agents and/or decision makers
  • Reduction on form mindset (i.e. information
    supports the operation versus data to fill form)
  • Data delivered in non-proprietary International
    standards based data formats for data exchange
  • ISO 10303, S1000D,……
  • Data translation services for legacy data formats
    and legacy information systems
  • Item Traceability Requirements drive selection of

  • IUID and RFID (separate but integrated)
  • IUID built on an existing International approach
  • Data Matrix is a pervasive data carrier
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Retail Foods
