The RFID Revolution: Your voice on the Challenges, Opportunities and Threats.
The Register "The commission has been holding discussions with government agencies and the private sector since March based on general themes of standardising RFID frequencies and formats across Europe, but now the emphasis has changed slightly to inform citizens on how the technology can improve quality of life without encroaching on individual privacy issues. With this in mind, the commission has initiated an online public consultation on its 'Your Voice in Europe' website."
An online public consultation on how the European Commission can help to ensure that the growing use of radio frequency identification devices (RFID) boosts the competitiveness of Europe's economy and improves the quality of life of its citizens, whilst safeguarding their basic rights, and in particular their privacy, has been launched on July 3rd on the 'Your Voice in Europe' website (http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/ipm/forms/dispatch?form=RFID).
