Give Your Views to the EU—Now!
The European Commission is proposing requirements that could dramatically curtail the benefits of RFID technology, so end users and vendors need to submit comments before April 25.
Apr 07, 2008—The potential of radio frequency identification to deliver value to companies and consumers across Europe is at risk. If you conduct business in Europe and think RFID might help you improve efficiencies, or if you sell RFID systems in Europe, you need to act—and soon.
It's easy to make your opinion count—there's an online form that will just take a few minutes to fill out. Here's a link.
The form presents each article of the draft, then provides a place for you to enter your opinion. Article 1 is an overview of the recommendations, and Article 2 provides the definitions used in those recommendations. Many, however are overly broad.
A "public place," for instance, is defined as "any area, including non-stationary means of public transport such as buses, planes, railways or ships, which can be accessed at all times or at certain times by everybody." So if you tag something that ends up in the cargo hold of an airplane, is that plane considered a public place?
