EU Sets Europe-wide Wireless Standard

The European Commission wants to set several wireless standards that are meant to spur demand, cut costs (hopefully resulting in lower prices) and help new products. Electronic makers will have a guarantee that their products won't have to deal with airwave interference. At the same time, radio frequency identification tags are to be addressed and the need for national licenses will end. Europe is also increasing usage of RFID chips, which are used to identify and give detailed information on goods, luggage, passports, pharmaceuticals and even livestock, which are expected to cut costs as well. The EU has stated that the new rules are meant to updateable and expandable to new areas and product categories as they hit the market.
