U.S., EU And SAP Collaborate On RFID

With an eye toward harmonizing global policies, the U.S. Department of Commerce, European Union officials, SAP and other public and private leaders met in Brussels during the week of September 12 to discuss RFID opportunities and challenges. The meeting, which was organized by the Business Software Alliance and The Centre, a Brussels-based think tank, took on such issues as:

  • The potential of RFID to facilitate global commerce and economic growth while enhancing safety, security and convenience for consumers and society;
  • The status of various RFID-related policy processes that are occurring on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world;
  • Smart ways to address legitimate concerns about data privacy and security while setting aside misconceptions with facts and open dialogue; and
  • The kinds of policies needed to promote the use of RFID globally in a practical and responsible manner.

This meeting is the fourth in a series hosted by SAP both in the U.S. and the EU.
