EU Policy on RFID & Privacy

Developments 2007, Outlook 2008

Following the public consultation on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) carried out in 2006 the European Commission set up an RFID Expert Group in July 2007, focussing on Privacy and Security. One of the groups tasks is to provide advice to the Commission on the content of a Recommendation to the member states, which shall set out the principles that public authorities and other stakeholders should apply in respect of RFID usage. European Digital Rights (EDRi) participates in this task as a member of the Expert Group.

This session will provide an overview of the EU policy activities regarding RFID and Privacy in 2007 and give an outlook to activities planned for 2008. EDRi's positions on RFID and Privacy will be presented and, when published by the Commission before the event, the contents of the Recommendation to the member states will be presented and discussed in detail.
