Final “Interim” DoD RFID Rule

Effective as of February 12, 2007, the Department of Defense’s interim RFID rule, which had initially been proposed on May 19, 2006, became final, effectively extending its passive RFID tagging rules to additional classes of commodities as well as expanding from two U.S. depot locations to most locations in the 48 contiguous states. Our readers can access these rules and related comments at the following link:


It should be noted that this latest iteration of the rules is merely finalization of an “interim” rule, and in the spring of 2007, it is expected that a new set of even more expansive rules will likely be put into effect as the Department of Defense rolls into the third – and final – year of its three year deployment effort. Now that the Department of Defense has, indeed, wired its U.S. depots, and has contracted for the wiring of its OCONUS depots, it is expected that the DoD will be administering ever more stringent requirements on its suppliers as it seeks to realize cost efficiencies with trading partners across its supply chain.
