RFID Standards

I have just returned from standards meetings in London UK, where we discussed many aspects of the standardization of RFID. The meetings included several items of news as well as progress for many of the standards:

  • A new work item to test performance of RFID gates used in library applications is underway.

  • The work on converting the GS1 EPCglobal specification UHF Gen 2 V2 into a revision to the ISO standard (18000-63) is underway and the document should start the balloting process early in the new year.

  • Parts 4 and 7 of ISO/IEC 18000 are progressing well and will be in DIS status very soon

  • The work on crypto suites for RFID tags (ISO/IEC 29167) is progressing well with several of the suites about to enter the final stages of balloting before they are published.

If you want more information on ISO standardization or on any issue of RFID standardization, then email steve@hightechaid.com. For a look at RFID standards work, you can visit http://www.UnderstandRFIDstandards.com.
