UHF RFID Frequency Regulations

UHF RFID Frequencies vary in each country based on each country’s regulations. Each country adopts an UHF RFID frequency that best fits within that country. These frequency ranges and standards were first put in place by a group of organizations – the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ASTM International, and EPC Global. These frequency bands are now known as the ISM bands, or the Industrial Scientific and Medical Bands.

UHF RFID Technology uses two main frequency ranges — 902-928 MHz and 865-868 MHz; however, a few countries have adopted either multiple bands or unique ranges on the ISM standard. One such country is Brazil who has adopted two uncommon frequency ranges within the 902-928 MHz range — one being 902-907.5 MHz and the other being 915-928 MHz. In order for UHF RFID equipment to be in compliance with Brazil’s regulations, the RFID reader needs to be set to broadcast within Brazil’s specific frequency ranges. This means that if you bring a UHF RFID reader to Brazil and operate using the full 902-928 MHz frequency range, you are in violation of local governmental regulations.

Frequency ranges also are subject to change. Japan, who previously used two very unique frequency ranges — 952-956.4 MHz and 952-957.6 MHz — has now changed to a frequency range within the 902-928 MHz range. Japan’s frequency range is currently 916.7-920.9 MHz (although 925-957.6 MHz will still be effective until March 31, 2018).

The map above shows the most common UHF frequencies for each country, but some countries have not adopted any frequency range yet. An example of a country that has not adopted a set frequency range would be Egypt who is currently working on getting that into place (as of the time of this article’s original published date).

860-960Mhz Ultra High Frequency tags

UHF follows the EPCglobal Gen2 standard and uses the 860—960Mhz frequency band to provide fast data transfer rates and much longer read ranges (up to 10m) compared to either LF or HF tags. UHF tags are used extensively in warehousing and goods tracking while UHF tags are popular for location and attendance tracking applications. UHF is negatively affected by materials in the environment such as metals and liquids, but is the best choice for applications that require a long read range and simultaneous reading of a large number of tags.

ISO and EPCglobal Protocols and Standards

The International Standards Organization (ISO) and EPCglobal are two organizations that work together to approve standards and protocols in order to provide universal specifications for RFID equipment. By creating global standards, these organizations enable the possibility of worldwide adoption of UHF RFID. Once ratified, protocols define communication methods approved with the air interface in conjunction with the operating frequency, channel bandwidth, frequency hop rate, etc.

The EPCglobal and ISO standards that are familiar today are largely due to the strides made by the Auto-ID Center from 1999 to 2003. The Auto-ID Center was, a non-profit organization made up of leaders in the RFID industry, and backed by large corporations like Walmart. In 1999 the Auto-ID Center created the first EPC standards as well as their own air interface protocol, both instrumental in attempting to commercialize UHF RFID. The other reason that the Auto-ID Center was so important is because it transitioned into two separate organizations: EPCglobal took over the commercialization of EPC technologies, while Auto-ID Labs continued the research and development role of the Auto-ID Center.

ISO/IEC TR 18047-4:2004

ISO/IEC TR 18047-4:2004 defines test methods for determining the conformance of radio frequency identification (RFID) devices (tags and interrogators) for item management with the specifications given in the corresponding part of ISO/IEC 18000, but does not apply to the testing of conformity with regulatory or similar requirements.

The test methods require only that the mandatory functions, and any optional functions which are implemented, be verified. This may, in appropriate circumstances, be supplemented by further, application specific functionality criteria that are not available in the general case.

The interrogator and tag conformance parameters in ISO/IEC TR 18047-4:2004 are:

mode-specific conformance parameters including nominal values and tolerances;
parameters that apply directly affecting system functionality and inter-operability.
The following are not included in ISO/IEC TR 18047-4:2004:

parameters that are already included in regulatory test requirements;
high-level data encoding conformance test parameters (these are specified in ISO/IEC 15962).
Unless otherwise specified, the tests in ISO/IEC TR 18047-4:2004 apply exclusively to RFID tags and interrogator defined in ISO/IEC 18000-4 Mode 2.
