Global RFID Interoperability Forum for Standards (GRIFS)
Global RFID Interoperability Forum for Standards
Start date: Jan 1, 2008,
End date: Feb 28, 2010
A support action for global RFID-related standardisation activities, involving in particular organisations from Europe, China, Japan, Korea and USA is sought and additional countries have been included to give good global coverage. A world where global supply chains are the norm requires that RFID tags and associated sensors can operate, can be seen and can be interrogated anywhere in the world. For maximum competitiveness and greatest efficiency this requires standards that are global and open in definition and in application. GS1/EPC proposes a two year project to improve collaboration and thereby to maximise the global consistency of RFID standards. Following the establishment of a worldwide view of the status of RFID standards, it is envisaged that the GRIFS project puts in place agreements for co-operation and initiates a Forum that will continue to work constructively thereafter. The activities of the Forum will be overseen by an Advisory Board with high level representation of key standards and other related bodies and should continue beyond this support action for as long as required.
