China Approves RFID Technology

Savi technology gets green light.

The China State Radio Regulation Committee (SRRC) gave its approval to Savi Technology for use of its family of active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) products throughout the country. Savi's tags and readers are compatible with the ISO 18000-7 (International Standardization Organization) standard for active RFID products operating at the 433.92 MHz radio frequency band.

"China's certification of Savi's hardware products further validates international recognition that active RFID technology standard ISO 18000-7 is the global standard," said Fraser Jennings, vice president of Standards and Regulatory Affairs for Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Savi Technology, a Lockheed Martin company.

"These product approvals in China, combined with similar prior approvals in North America, South America, Europe and Pacific Rim markets such as Australia, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong, clearly show the solid support for the 433 MHz frequency as the worldwide choice for active RFID," Jennings said.
