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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
