FTC responds to Nelson

Filed under: — Laura @ 7:33 am

RFID journal reports that the Federal Trade Commission responded to queries by Democratic Senator Bill Nelson (Fla.). Their jurisdiction is limited to unfair or deceptive commercial practices – in other words, they will intervene if a company abuses personal information gathered from RFID. Nelson had asked what steps the FTC is taking to regulate RFID and Deborah Majoras, FTC chair, pointed to the last June’s workshop.

The commission will be releasing a report based on the workshop that will have some guidelines.
