RFID Guidelines in Development
RFIDNovember 3, 2010
Trade associations and technology companies have come together to develop guidelines and standards to support the push for RFID technology across the apparel supply chain, RFID News reports. The "Item Level RFID Initiative" group includes the National Retail Federation, Retail Industry Leaders Association, Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions and standards organization GS1, among others. The group intends to support the need to protect consumer privacy when using RFID technology, the report states, and to list guidelines for RFID use. Macy's and Walmart are among the retailers that have switched to RFID technology.
