When Quality Counts

When Quality Counts, We Deliver on Our Promise

We have a simple goal: To provide our customers with the best products and solutions the market has to offer. To achieve that goal, we focus on quality that is never compromised – but frequently certified.


Assurance for Customers: Our ARC Quality Certification
For Smartrac as for the entire RFID industry, the RFID Lab at Auburn University is one of the most important independent authorities. That is why one certification stands out: Early in 2019, we were one of the first companies to receive the comprehensive and significant ARC Quality Certification for the design and manufacturing of our RFID inlays and tags.



A wealth of RFID Lab Approvals
Additionally, RFID Lab at Auburn University has also officially approved dozens of Smartrac's inlays and tags from ACCESSORY to WEB, and from BELT to WINGS, just to name a few.


Certification bodies and associations confirm our quality
Depending on the application area, a large portion of our inlays and tags are tested and certified by other highly regarded certification bodies and industry associations. These include the NFC Forum and DEKRA, which have certified a suite of popular CIRCUS NFC inlays, and GS1 (Global Standards One) which have certified WEB RAIN RFID inlays.


All of Smartrac’s RFID inlays and tags are compliant with ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management, ensuring reliable and state-of-the-art products that meets a variety of requirements, especially for, but not restricted to retail and industrial applications.


In addition, we take a holistic approach to ensure maximum quality for every single product we produce.


Quality Has Many Aspects – We Take Care of Them All
For Smartrac, quality is more than just a product feature or a mindset. Quality has to be firmly anchored in the minds of all stakeholders, it has to be designed, engineered, tested and, probably as the most demanding aspect, it has to be reliably manufactured in volumes.


A wealth of independent tests and certifications prove that Smartrac’s RFID and NFC inlays and tags provide optimum performance and regularly set standards for the RFID industry.


To foster the success of RFID as a future-orientated technology and to create awareness for quality in RFID, Smartrac is an active member of key industry associations, including the RAIN RFID alliance and the NFC Forum, just to name a few.


To ensure high continuous quality of all our RFID inlays and tags manufactured, Smartrac runs some of the best-in-class and most comprehensive, innovative manufacturing sites within the RFID industry, with state-of-the-art factories across APAC, EMEA and the Americas region.


Smartrac’s factory and distribution facility in Fletcher, North Carolina, is the only large-scale, high-volume RFID inlay and tag production and customization center in the United States.


Those factories, development and distribution centers have continuously expanded and recently ramped up production capacity to more than 3.5 billion RFID inlays and tags per year.
