  • ISO 11784 & 11785 are international standards that regulate the radio frequency identification of animals, which is usually accomplished by implanting a microchip into just under the animal's skin. RF identification of animals requires that the bits transmitted by a transponder are interpretable by a transceiver. Usually the bit stream contains data bits, defining the identification code and a number of bits to ensure correct reception of the data bits. ISO 11784 specifies the structure of the identification code. ISO 11785 specifies how a transponder is activated and how the stored information is transferred to a transceiver These standards are updated and expanded in ISO 14223 which regulates "advanced" transponders for animals.
