RFID Compliance and Privacy

AIM Global (Warrendale, Penn.) the worldwide trade association for automatic identification and mobility technologies, announced the details of two panel discussions focused on RFID technologies, its use issues and the status of mandates and compliance. The panel discussions are part of the 2006 AIM Annual Showcase and RFID Interactive taking place at the Hyatt Newport Beach (Newport Beach, Calif.) February 22-24.

It’s been nearly three years since market leaders such as Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense (DoD) announced their RFID compliance initiatives. In a unique panel discussion on February 22, Mark Roberti, editor, RFID Journal, moderates "Compliance Underway -- What’s Next," as key industry executives from The Boeing Company, Unique Identification Program Office, SRA International and Kimberly-Clark share their insights on their RFID and Auto ID compliance initiatives.

In the closing session for RFID Interactive, an end-user event held in conjunction with the Showcase, an expert panel reviews the different sides of the RFID and privacy debate. Ross Stapleton-Gray of Stapleton-Gray and Associates, will moderate a panel of policy professionals from CAP Analysis and the Electronic Frontier Foundation as they discuss the issues/non-issues related to RFID. The session, "RFID and Privacy -- The REAL Story," is slated for the afternoon of February 23.

"We are thrilled with the quality of speakers for the Showcase program this year, and these panel discussions are absolutely essential," said AIM Global President, Dan Mullen. "Education is at the heart of AIM's mission, and the panel sessions are instrumental to delivering unbiased information in an engaging setting."
