The next Department of Defense (DoD) RFID Summit will be held April 6-8, 2004 at the Hilton Washington and Towers, 1919 Conncticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC.
The purpose of the summit is to discuss the DoD RFID polity and its implications for industry partners. The policy includes the requirement for DoD suppliers to apply passive Electronic Product Code RFID tags to cases and pallets of material shipped to the DoD as well as on the packaging of all items requiring a Unique Identification by January 1, 2005. Plans are to release the final version of the policy in July 2004.
The Summit in April should familiarize suppliers with the DoD policy, solicit feedback and introduce the RFID technology.
