ISO/IEC 18000 is an international standard that describes a series of diverse RFID technologies, each using a unique frequency range.

ISO/IEC 18000 consists of the following parts, under the general title Information technology — Radio frequency identification for item management:

The ISO/IEC 18000-6 is a large document. In 2012 it was split into 5 parts for publication:

The various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 describe air interface communication at different frequencies in order to be able to utilize the different physical behaviors. The various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 are developed by ISO/IEC JTC1 SC31, "Automatic Data Capture Techniques".

Conformance test methods for the various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 are defined in the corresponding parts of ISO/IEC 18047. (See RFID testing)

Performance test methods are defined in ISO/IEC 18046. (See RFID testing)
