RFID Frequently Asked Question

Will my company have to replace our entire bar code infrastructure to take advantage of the Electronic Product Code?

EPCglobal is promoting the Electronic Product Code as the next standard for identifying products. It is trying to create a migration path for companies to move from established standards for bar codes to the new EPC. To encourage this evolution, it has adopted the basic structures of the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), an umbrella group under which virtually all existing bar codes fall. It is envisioned that companies will maintain their bar code systems and add new EPC infrastructure.
