UID Labels: 

Unique Identification (UID) Marking is a Department of Defense (DoD) mandate that requires a globally Unique Item Identifier (UII) to track items throughout their lifecycle. It is a permanent marking method used to give equipment a unique ID. Marking is required for all equipment with an acquisition cost of over $5,000, controlled inventory, and equipment which is mission essential, serially-controlled, or consumable. We provide a variety of UID tags and labels that are compliant to MIL-STD 130N.
