RFID: Emerging Policy Issues

In a previous article we outlined some of the issues surrounding the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) and electronic product code (EPC) technology for the converting industry. As we indicated, the primary concern surrounding the use of this technology involves privacy and security when personal information becomes associated with RFID tags. Privacy and security were the major focus of a workshop on RFID sponsored by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) last summer.

This challenge is unique because some suppliers are being required to supply RFID-enabled pallets and cases while others are not.

Rotary Screen Printings Contribution to RFID

RFID production certainly has come a long way in the last few years—but a number of technological jumps are necessary before RFID tags can be used at product level.
