RD244 - ETNO Reflection Document on RFID

ETNO acknowledges the benefits of the RFID technology and welcomes the initiative of the EC regarding this broad consultation. ETNO believes that the use of radio frequencies should be harmonised to avoid interferences and that there is a need for adequate standardisation to allow interoperability. The Association thinks there is sufficient regulation in place to deal with frequency management issues as well as with privacy issues.
