This Technical Specification defines a mechanism for the unique identification of individual receptacles. It specifies the method of construction of the identifier, referred to as the receptacle asset number, and defines one required and a number of optional methods by which this identifier can be associated with (affixed to) the receptacle itself. The receptacle asset number is defined in accordance with the specification of ISO/IEC 15418 data identifier number 5B, which defines a Receptacle Asset Number or container identifier constructed in accordance with the hierarchical principles defined in ISO/IEC 15459. The specification also identifies a number of receptacle attributes, or characteristics, which it might be useful to communicate between parties making use of the receptacle concerned. A coded representation of one of these attributes - equipment qualifier - is integrated into the structure of the receptacle asset number. The others are not defined in detail in this document. Precise definitions and encoding formats for them will be developed over time, as a result of practical experience of use of the specification. The definitions will be included in an appropriate reference specification, such as UPU standards S25 [15] and M82 [8], which serve as baseline definition documents for attributes used in postal industry communications about postal items, mail aggregates and receptacles. The application of this specification is voluntary in the sense that receptacles are not required to be individually identified. However, for postal receptacles which do carry an individual identifier, the application of this specification is strongly recommended. The receptacle asset number, defined in accordance with this specification, is primarily intended for use in asset management applications, which include receptacle tracking. It is not intended that it be used to replace the mail aggregate identifier, defined in UPU standard S9 [9], for the process management and tracking of the content of the receptacle. However, users of the specification may agree to its use for this purpose on a bilateral basis. Many of the examples given in this document relate to receptacle asset numbers issued under the UPU issuing agency code (IAC). The use of this IAC is subject to registration as an issuer under UPU standard S31. The use of the examples concerned is in no way intended to pre-empt or prejudice such registration.
