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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
