The DoD is cracking down on compliance deadlines for labeling specifications under MIL-STD-129 for containers and shipments. Your contract may include a DFARS clause which would require RFID labels or tags be used.
The labeling standard, MIL-STD-129 has recently been updated to MIL-STD-129R and we’ve updated our eBook to include the new information. Get your copy here
Depending on if it is your contract or your customer’s contract, you may also have to send related data back to the DoD. If you are currently using a DD250 paper-based system, you probably know that is being phased out and the new requirements include using an electronic transmission ie: WAWF and UID Registry.
There are some real benefits to this mandate: 1.) The US stands to save billions of dollars in defense expenses. 2.) With better management of shipments and supplies, critical supplies will be readily available when needed. And 3.) Once in compliance, you should be paid faster.
This process doesn’t have to be painful. It’s actually simple once you understand the necessary steps and implement a good compliance plan.
