Specifies a common data format for NFC Forum-compliant devices and NFC Forum-compliant tags.

The NFC Data Exchange Format Technical Specification provides a standard format for NFC application data and RTD specifications specify the format and rules for building standard record types used by NFC Forum application definitions and third parties that are based on the NDEF data format. Application level specifications are important for use cases that require an exchange of control information, such as smart posters and remote control, because message format is defined and issues that must be considered for implementation are addressed. The RTD specifications provide a way to efficiently define record formats for new applications and gives users the opportunity to create their own applications based on NFC Forum specifications.
