An Electronic Product Code (EPC) is a universal identifier that gives a unique identity to a specific physical object. The identities assigned to the objects are encoded on an RFID tags and can be used to track almost any object including fixed and mobile assets, documents, reusable transit items, consumer goods or any other physical object.
