ISO/IEC 29161:2016 establishes a unique identification scheme for the Internet of Things (IoT), based on existing and evolving data structures. This International Standard specifies the common rules applicable for unique identification that are required to ensure full compatibility across different identities. The unique identification is a universal construct for any physical object, virtual object, or person. It is used in IoT information systems that need to track or otherwise refer to entities. It is intended for use with any IoT media.
