DoD - Clarifying the Default Rule on Passive RFID Requirements

RFID Law Journal
Newsletter No. 32
December 30, 2006

We’ve made the point more than a few times this past year that the Department of Defense is moving from the “carrot” to the “stick” phase of its rollout of its passive RFID requirements. With the third year of its three year rollout just around the corner, it’s not surprising that the DoD capped off the year with yet another notice to its vendors that essentially requires them to validate in processing their orders that they are shipping in compliance with the DoD’s RFID requirements. The text of the notice can be read at the following link which is entitled “Attention DIBBS Vendors Including EDI Vendors – DIBBS Quote Form and BATCH File Format Change – Effective December 17, 2006” .

This most recent notice follows other significant policy change notices which foreshadowed for serious, long-term vendors that attention to RFID is a pre-condition to doing business with the DoD. For example, see “Significant Revision to our Previous Notice on New Passive RFID Requirements Effective July 19, 2006” and “Passive RFID Requirements (May 25, 2006)”
