HOW SMALL BUSINESS CAN BECOME RFID COMPLIANT?

Short-Term Solution

EPCglobal recommended fastest way to get US Government compliant is to purchase RFID tags which are pre-programmed and verified, in accordance with Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code. This code is issued by the US government. By encoding this number in RFID tags, one can create its own RFID tags. These tags are manually affixed to products before they are shipped, which means personnel must be trained on tag placement. 

Less than 1,000 shipments per month

At this volume, it makes the most sense to continue purchasing pre-programmed and verified RFID tags.

Between 1,000 and 10,000 shipments per month

At this volume, one may need an on-site system at the facility to create tags as per requirements. There are a few RFID-enabled shipping systems available that include an RFID printer-encoder and software. These systems produce RFID tags and shipping labels.

More than 10,000 shipments per month
