UID Labels and Nameplates

About UID and IUID Marking

Unique Identification (UID) and Item Unique Identification (IUID) are part of the identification marking process mandated by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). UID and IUID are permanent marking methods used to give military property and Government-Furnished Property (GFP) a Unique Item Identification (UII).

UID and IUID marking is a systematic process to globally and unambiguous distinguish property and ensure data integrity throughout an item’s lifecycle through the use of two-dimensional (2D) Data Matrix ECC 200 Symbols.

UID and IUID marking is required for all military property and equipment with an acquisition cost over $5,000, equipment that is mission essential, controlled inventory, or serially-controlled.
