Due to the lack of relevant standards in RFID applications, information can not be effectively shared and transferred among different types of products, with the result that consumers' needs cannot be fully met.
With this in mind, China's National Standardization Committee has decided to build an RFID Network in order to provide technical support for businesses to keep track of real-time information for particular goods at any time.
RFID technology first came into being in the 1990s. Thanks to its ease of use, and the ability to identify goods automatically, it has been widely applied in a variety of fields such as production, logistics, traffic, medicine, food industry and counterfeit-prevention. Adoption of this technology in place of the traditional barcode is expected to bring about a revolutionary change in global supplies, and will at the same time promote the development of other electronic products.
