NTC issues regulations on RFID technology

What’s RFID? It is radio frequency identification. Instead of bar codes, RFID tags are now used increasingly because you don’t need to scan each item with a reader. It only needs to come within the proximity of a radio signal for it to be identified. RFID technology is a wireless technology that also stores information, just like bar codes. Here’s another definition I found on the Internet.

A data collection technology that uses electronic tags for storing data. The tag, also known as an “electronic label,” “transponder” or “code plate,” is made up of an RFID chip attached to an antenna. Transmitting in the kilohertz, megahertz and gigahertz ranges, tags may be battery-powered or derive their power from the RF waves coming from the reader.

The National Telecommunications Commission has issued rules requiring suppliers, manufacturers, and dealers to register with them. This aims to encourage the entry of more equipment in the country.
