Other Technical Standards

    BS EN 50357:2001 Evaluation of human exposure to electromagnetic fields from devices used in electronic article surveillance (EAS), radio frequency identification (RFID) and similar applications.

    BS EN 50364:2002 Limitation of human exposure to electromagnetic fields from devices operating in the frequency range 0 Hz to 10 GHz, used in Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and similar applications.

    ANSI INCITS 256-2001 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) (formerly ANSI NCITS 256-2001).

    Establishes a technical standard for a family of compatible RFID devices, specifically, RFID devices operating in freely available international frequency bands at license-free power levels. Its purposes are as follow: Promote interoperability and compatibility between RFID devices by defining a common API and limited physical and data link layer options. Support item management applications and provide flexibility in the physical layer definitions to allow additional features for uses that value such enhancements. The scope includes the following: ° Frequency ° Interface definitions ° RDID system definition ° Minimum features ° Compliance requirements ° Document structure and references ° Tag identification number ° Manufacturer's tag identification number: MfrTagID ° User's tag identification number: UserTagID.

    DIN V 30745 (2003) Radio-frequency identification of waste containers by transponder technology.

    This prestandard describe the radio-frequency identification of waste containers by transponder technology.
