At the International Air Transport Association (IATA)'s Joint Passenger Services Conference, held in Geneva in 2005, IATA member airlines unanimously approved the IATA Recommended Practice (RP) 1740C document, which endorsed the use of ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags and readers (interrogators) compliant with the ISO 18000-6C protocol as a global air-interface standard for RFID baggage tags. RP1740C is the IATA standard that defines the requirements for applying RFID technology for the purpose of baggage handling. It includes both mandatory and optional data (see IATA Approves UHF for Bag Tags). To date, however, airlines have yet to embrace the standard and deploy RFID system-wide.
