Product Code and RFID The future is here
on 8th & 9th November, 2004, New Delhi.
We have received a communication
from Export Commissioner informing that Department of Commerce
is co-organising a National Conference-cum-Exhibition, Electronic
Product Code and RFID The future is here on
8th & 9th November, 2004 at Hotel Intercontinental
The Grand, Barakhamba Avenue, New Delhi.
Use of EPC based RFID (Radio
Frequency Identification) technology has already been mandated
by leading global retailers like Wal-Mart, Metro, Tesco,
Best Buy, Albertsons etc. and exporters will need to commence
affixing RFID tags on their cases/products in the near future.
The use of RFID is also
being increasingly endorsed by Government bodies by U.S.
Food & Drug Administration and U.S. Deptt. of Defence,
with U.S. Customs, EU Food Authorities also looking at endorsing
its implementation by global suppliers across product categories.
RFID technology has multi-varied
applications of interest to global buyers and Regulatory
bodies which include counterfeit detection, end-to-end consignment
traceability in global supply chains, efficient product
recalls, container/cargo tracking, stocks management in
warehouses/retail shelves, detection of pilferage/shrinkage
and product diversion.
Industry, particularly manufacturers,
can use it for internal applications as well which include
stock management, production scheduling, JIT (Just in Time),
quality assurance etc.
The Conference has leading
International/National experts led by the co-founder of
Auto-ID Centre, MIT, Dr.Sanjay Sarma who will provide deep
insights into how this technology can be deployed to benefit
Suppliers and Regulators.
An Exhibition being held
alongside the Conference will show case through live demos
on how this technology works.
Exporters may consider participating
in the Conference to understand the technology, global perspectives
and its various applications/benefits.
