About An Introduction to ISO 15926

The ISO 15926 Primer started in the spring of 2008 as part of the Camelot and Avalon projects sponsored by Fiatech and the POSC Caesar Association. It was finished in the fall of 2009 and made public on this website. It explained in simple terms what ISO 15926 is, why it is needed, where it comes from, how it works, and finally, some ideas for getting started.

Due to continued demand from the Fiatech membership for some introductory information about ISO 15926, Fiatech decided to publish it in book form. A group of experts was gathered for a line-by-line review. New material was added and some out-of-date parts were completely rewritten.

This PCA website now contains:

  • What is ISO 15926?
    • A brief introduction to ISO 15926 in a form that can be used as the basis of a presentation to a group of new people.
  • The introduction from the book.
