National and International Standards

Under ISO 15434.3, enterprises can now choose between Text Element Identifiers maintained by the Air Transport Association's Common Support Data Dictionary, Application Identifiers maintained by GS1 (formerly UCC.EAN), and Data Identifiers maintained by Material Handling Industry (MH10 SC 8) of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

IUID policy has allowed for the use of a Format Code "DD" while the update to ISO 15434 was being undertaken. For organizations that have been using Format Code "DD", the DoD encourages a rapid transition to the use of Format Code "12" with a target date of January 1, 2007 to cease using the "DD" format for any newly marked items.

We expect that there are and will continue to be parts with Format Code "DD" for Text Element Identifiers and they will exist in the operational inventory until supplies are exhausted. This will necessitate imaging devices and supporting AIS systems to recognize both "DD" and "12" since both will be acceptable by DoD for the foreseeable future. There is no intent or direction to re-mark any items that have used the "DD" Format Code.

We extend our appreciation and thanks to the many individuals and organizations that have supported this effort. Thank you!
