Harmonized UHF Frequency Bands From 2020 in the EU?

No new published harmonized standard yet - How to proceed now! At the beginning of 2020, the final document of the harmonized EU standard EN 302 208 should make the use of the upper UHF frequency band possible throughout Europe. This is a result of the ETSI meeting in Sophia-Antipolis on 15 October 2019. Josef Preishuber-Pflügl, Vice-Chairman of ERM TG34 RFID at ETSI since 2005, gave a keynote speech on 30 October 2019 at the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow where he presented the latest information from the standardization process. "On the part of ETSI, the standardization work has been completed. The ball is now in the court of the EU Commission and the member states to implement the use quickly," says Preishuber-Pflügl. For this reason AIM Europe invites to a webinar on 13 November 2019 to inform all interested parties from the RFID industry about the latest developments. Article compiled by RFID & Wireless IoT global with information from Josef Preishuber-Pflügl, Vice-Chairman ERM TG34 RFID, ETSI, presented at RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2019.
