EN The topic of this paper has been motivated by interest of new technologies in the area of civil engineering. New digital ways of design, oversight of manufacturing, construction and ways of upkeep and control of already completed structures are observed in fast developing industry branches. These methods which are gaining popularity in Poland are often already a standard in other countries where building information modeling BIM is present in engineering, facility management and state administration practice. Basic information necessary to understand conception of RFID technology usage in civil engineering are presented. The description of a GS1 organization is given. In the next chapter RFID technology is described, ways of current usage and possible ways of implementing it into civil engineering industry products. There is the comparison of RFID tagging technology to bar-/quad-coding marking technology as well. As a case study one can read about example of system design of prefabricated product identification and localization using RFID technology in order to improve and optimize prefabricate production inside product factory, transportation, construction works, handover and facility operation. So the effects of using RFID are investigated for improvement of products management during its life-cycle exploitation.
