CLERMONT-FERRAND, France—After some recent delays, a universal ISO standard for RFID tire tags is now expected to be available by the end of 2019, according to Michelin's Pierre Loiret, who leads on industrial standards and government regulation. He also is a co-convenor on the ISO TC31 WG10 working group, which is tasked with drawing up the standard.
Some 60 experts from Austria, Belgium, China, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the U.S. are providing input to the working group.
Since an update in February, Loiret said some delays had occurred on two of the four texts—CD 20911 (Embedding methods for RFID tire tags) and CD 20912 (Testing methods for RFID).
"There was some more discussion at CD (the committee draft) stage for both texts: the documents will be sent for CD ballot in October," he said in a written update to ERJ. "We are expecting a positive voting for the end of the year and then being able to publish the ISO 20909 (RFID tire tags) and 20910 (Coding for RFID tire tags) in the first half of 2019 and ISO 20911 and 20912 in the second half."
