Identification Marking of U.S. Military Property
This standard provides the item marking criteria for development of specific marking requirements and methods for identification of items of military property produced, stocked, stored, and issued by or for the Department of Defense. This standard addresses criteria and data content for both free text and machine-readable information (MRI) applications of item identification marking.
This issue of MIL-STD-130 continues to provide evolving clarification, increased insight and guidance regarding implementation of Machine-Readable Information (MRI) for item identification marking and automatic data capture. MRI provides a valuable tool for life-cycle asset management from acquisition through manufacture to logistics and final disposition. However, the use of MRI may not be suitable or adequate for every item identification need. The application of Human Readable Information (HRI) in combination with MRI and free text information item identification marking in lieu of MRI is still necessary for many end users of the identified item. Finding the most effective use of both marking protocols, either singly or in combination, is the prime responsibility of the acquiring activity.
