RFID Mandates

Meet RFID Tag Mandate Requirements

At atlasRFIDstore, we can help!

RFID is complicated, and so are retail tag mandates. Our goal is to streamline RFID compliance and layout a simple process to help suppliers get the RFID tags they need, so they can get back to doing what they do best – providing exceptional quality items to everyday consumers through retailers.

We are able to do this because we know RFID - we’ve been in the RFID industry for nearly two decades. Not only that, but we’ve worked alongside the Auburn ARC Lab from its conception, and we’ve worked with retail giants like Walmart to understand their individual playbooks and unique systems.

Not every RFID tag mandate is the same, and neither is every retail supplier. Whether you are providing clothes for Nordstrom, electronics for Walmart, or specialty sports gear for Dick's Sporting Goods - we can help you.

If you are ready to get started, contact our team today!

Let us help you simplify the process - from start to finish.

We have a plan...

Retail Tag Mandate Process

We’ve helped dozens of retail suppliers with their RFID tag needs and created a simplified process that puts you and your customer's needs first. We work to eliminate stress points and keep the technical jargon to a minimum so we can guarantee success.

We Listen & Provide Options

First, we want to know about the products you supply to your retail customer(s). Please share details like department, department subcategory, packaging type, and estimated annual quantity. With this info, we'll recommend a product that fits within specs and is suitable for your product.

Provide ARC Approval Guidance

Once you receive the tag samples, you'll need to complete the ARC Approval Submission form found in the retailer's RFID playbook. Thoroughly complete the form, print it, and send it with at least 5 sample tags to the Auburn RFID Lab. If this step feels daunting, don't fret—we're here to guide you!

Send You Custom Samples

Once we've settled on a tag that fits the spec and your product, we can encode and print the chosen tag to meet the requirements provided by the retailer. We'll then send these samples out to you for the next step in the process.

Set You Up for Success

While we await tag approval, we'll discuss your ongoing RFID tag needs. This includes assessing your quantity and delivery requirements and deciding whether Atlas's team should handle printing and encoding or if we can support you in setting up an in-house printing and encoding solution.
