Radio Frequency Identification: European Project CE RFID discusses Guidelines and Legal Aspects

06.09.2007
METRO Group and Deutsche Post World Net invite experts on RFID guidelines and regulatory issues to a workshop at the DHL Innovation Centre in Troisdorf/Bonn, Germany on September 10th. This workshop is part of the European project CE RFID (Coordinating European Efforts for Promoting the European RFID Value Chain).

RFID is considered to become a key technology in future IT systems. However, many potential users are facing basic questions: Are there any guidelines for the use of RFID in my business? Which legal regulations must be obeyed? The European project CE RFID will discuss these matters at a workshop. Experts from the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), NXP Semiconductors Austria GmbH, and Deutsche Post World Net will introduce the topics "Guidelines" and "Legal Aspects".

Guidelines

Companies of various sectors have gained a considerable experience in testing or implementing RFID technology. However, there seems to be a lack of broadly available practical knowledge concerning the introduction of RFID. One of the key challenges for companies using RFID is to create guidelines for the use of the technology in their specific application field. Harald Kelter, Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and Cord Bartels, NXP will open the discussion by presenting their current work on technical guidelines for implementation and utilisation of RFID-based systems. Afterwards the participants of the workshop will elaborate criteria for appropriate guidelines.

Legal Aspects

The development and deployment of RFID shall already comply with numerous national and European regulations, e.g. radio licenses, CE certificates, employment and data protection. However, there are some legal open questions regarding for instance data security or the recycling of RFID transponders that require specific analysis. Gabriela Krader, Corporate Data Protection Officer of Deutsche Post World Net, will exemplify regulation matters regarding RFID at Deutsche Post. The workshop participants will then discuss and assess the regulatory framework for European RFID users.

Date: Monday, September 10, 2007, 9:30 - 19:15h
Venue: DHL Innovation Center, Junkersring 55, 53844 Troisdorf, Germany
Agenda: www.rfid-in-action.eu
The workshop is part of a series of workshops in the European project CE RFID.
CE RFID
CE RFID was launched in April 2006 by leading RFID users and vendors. Its main intent is to strengthen the European competitiveness of RFID in the context of the aims of the Lisbon strategy by providing recommendations for a European approach on RFID. The activities of the project focus on the following RFID topics: application and technology roadmaps, European R&D policy, standardisation, guidelines and European legislation. Members of CE RFID are METRO Group, Siemens, Tyco ADT, Deutsche Post World Net, NXP, UPM Raflatac, Feig Electronic, RF-iT, AIDA Centre, Pleon, VDI/VDE-IT and EADS. CE RFID is a Coordination Action funded by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme. The coordinator of CE RFID, Dr Gerd Wolfram, MGI METRO, is also chairman of the Cluster of European RFID Projects - CERP.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
