The standards world continues to move forward, but interestingly we
continue to see a drop in participation in the work. Why is this?
Are companies prepared to take whatever happens in the
standardization world without comment? There are plenty of things
being proposed as new work, yet we are not seeing the companies who
should be involved step up to participate.
If you want more information on ISO standardization or on any issue of RFID standardization, then email email@example.com. For a look at RFID standards work, you can visit http://www.UnderstandRFIDstandards.com.
