As defined by ISO 28219, quality control for labels and markings provides a means for items, parts and components to be marked and read in either fixtured or handheld scanning environments at any manufacturers’ facility and then read by customers purchasing items for subsequent manufacturing or for final use. Intended applications range from inventory, distribution, manufacturing, quality control and transportation as well as acquisition, supply, repair and disposal.
