November 2, 2004—Singapore, who six months ago announced a government-sponsored US $6 million investment to spur domestic RFID development, has expanded the radio frequency bands on which RFID is legally permitted to broadcast within the country. The change was made explicitly to ensure that RFID tags on goods passing through Singapore, one of the world's busiest and most important shipping hubs, would be compatible with North American and European bands. Said a government spokesman of the new policy, "Our RFID applications must interoperate with the U.S. and European systems to allow the physical movement of goods across borders to be tracked with the same RFID tag." RFID's spectrum is now 866-869 MHz and 923-925 MHz for UHF. The power limit for the bands was also increased.
