This standard defines uniform quality and technical requirements relative to metallic parts marking performed using "data matrix symbology" within the aviation, space, and defense industry. ISO/IEC 16022 specifies general requirements (e.g., data character encodation, error correction rules, decoding algorithm). In addition to ISO/IEC 16022 specification, part identification with such symbology is subject to the requirements in this standard to ensure electronic reading of the symbol.
The marking processes covered by this standard are as follows:
- Dot Peening
- Electro-Chemical Etching
Further marking processes will be included, if required.
Unless specified otherwise in the contractual business relationship, the company responsible for the design of the part shall determine the location of the data matrix marking. Symbol position should allow optimum illumination from all sides for readability.
This standard does not specify information to be encoded.

This standard has been revised to cleanup the general text/content and reformat the document to the latest format/style guide. This standard was created to provide for uniform quality and technical requirements relative to metallic parts marking performed within the aviation, space, and defense industry. This standard can be invoked as a stand-alone requirement or used in conjunction with 9100-series standards (i.e., 9100, 9110, 9120).
