There is no FDA requirement for the use of high-frequency (HF) or ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification—or any other type of RFID—in hospitals.
EPCglobal, which creates hardware and standards for the use of RFID, has been working with some health-care organizations to encourage the industry to create guidelines for how to employ passive RFID to track goods in the health-care supply chain. To date, however, no formal guidelines have yet been issued.
