ISO/IEC JTC 1 Working Group to Develop Automatic ID and Data Capture Standards

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages relevant stakeholders to get involved

Published: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 11:00

(ANSI: New York, NY) -- The International Organization for Standardization/
International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) Joint Technical Committee (JTC) 1—“Information technology,” Subcommittee (SC) 31—“Automatic identification and data capture techniques” recently announced the formation of new Working Group (WG 8)—“Application of automatic identification and data capture standards.” As the U.S. member body to ISO, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages relevant stakeholders to get involved.

Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technologies are used to identify, record, and store information on billions of items on a global scale—for example, consumer products are tagged using bar coding and radio frequency identification (RFID). Automatic identification and data capture is used to support various industries, including retail, electronics, aerospace, transportation, and across the supply chain used for replenishment, storage, and quality control.

Working Group 8 will serve to assist other standards committees in applying AIDC standards, develop AIDC application standards, and to be the external focal point for SC 31 work. ISO/IEC JTC SC 31 has published more than 100 international standards in the AIDC area, which address bar code symbologies (how a bar code is created and read), RFID air interface protocol (how an RFID tag is read), real-time locating systems, as well as unique identification and data content.

“Through the efforts of Working Group 8 and the liaison process, Subcommittee 31 and its range of world-class experts are ready to assist international committees developing standards which use of automatic identification and data capture technologies,” says Henri Barthel, chair of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 31. “This will help ensure interoperability and compliance with global standards between growing sets of applications in all sectors.”

“The ability for Subcommittee 31 experts to address the many application areas that use automatic identification and data capture technologies will allow for their wider and better use, as well as providing a useful set of resources for organizations interested in using the technologies,” says Chuck Evanhoe, convenor of SC 31/WG 8. “We can act as a resource for other standards committees, as well as assist users in their implementations of the technologies.”

The United States plays a leading role in JTC 1 with ANSI holding the secretariat and Phil Wennblom of Intel as JTC 1 chair until the end of 2021. The United States also plays a leading role in JTC 1/SC 31: ANSI holds the secretariat, which has been delegated to GS1, with Henri Barthel of GS1 serving as chairperson until the end of 2020. Also the convenorship of WG 8 is U.S. held with Chuck Evanhoe of Evanhoe & Associates in the leading role through mid-June.

About ISO/IEC JTC 1

ISO/IEC JTC 1 provides an environment, in which global experts come together to develop information and communication technology international standards for business and consumer applications. Additionally, the JTC 1 working environment enables integrating diverse and complex information and communication technologies. These standards rely upon the core infrastructure technologies developed by JTC 1 centers of expertise, complemented by specifications developed in other organizations.

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 31 scope: Standardization of data formats, data syntax, data structures, data encoding, and technologies for the process of automatic identification and data capture and of associated devices utilized in inter-industry applications and international business interchanges and for mobile applications.
