February 6, 2005—The European Union published a "working document" on January 19th that addresses the use of consumer data generated from RFID. The EU, whose consumer privacy protection requirements are typically stronger than those of the U.S. and elsewhere, already has in place a number of laws with respect to consumers and RFID. The new Working Document 105 provides guidance to RFID manufacturers and standards organizations "on their responsibility towards designing privacy compliant technology in order to enable deployers of the technology to carry out their obligations" according to the existing EU laws. The Working Party, author of the document, has launched a campaign to solicit feedback from the public. Through March 31st, comments are welcome at the address markt-privacy-consultations@cec.eu.int.
