Australian guidelines

A coalition of retailers, the national UPC code administrators, and the the Australian Privacy Commissioner are collaborating on a RFID code of practice. [Computerworld Australia]

Too bad the article doesn’t indicate to what exactly this code of practice pertains. The piece reads as if the retailers and UPC folks are only interested in collaborating on standards. At least they are working with the privacy folks.

Compare and contrast with how North American commercial interests have lobbied against legislative restrictions on RFID use. A code of practice is, by nature, self-policing, but it’s at least an acknowledgment of the issue.
