If your goods are sold in Walmart stores across the U.S. or Puerto Rico, or on Walmart.com,
beginning on September 2, 2022, several products entering stores must have RFID tags (radio frequency identification) and be 100% readable by RFID readers or you will be deemed noncompliant. The product categories impacted include, but may not be limited to, items in home goods, electronics, toys, sporting goods, and automotive. Our team of experts can help implement a solution for your business to meet Walmart’s RFID requirements.
