The European Guide to implement EPC/RFID for Retailers and their Suppliers

The adoption of EPC and RFID technology is expanding rapidly in different regions of the world, including in Europe. Since the technology is based on its potential to improve business processes across the global value chain, it has been championed by more and more industries. In order to use EPC and RFID efficiently, all companies involved need to agree initially on basic specifications and standards about how to implement this technology. The European Guide supports companies to prepare their deployment and to protect their investment while increasing confidence to those who are new to the technology.

Taking into account that GS1 EPCglobal standards are in place now, there is still the need for guidelines and references of good practices to facilitate any future EPC implementations in Europe. Hence, the initiative of different European retailers and consumer goods manufacturers to come together and develop the European Guide. Major stakeholders in the retail environment like Carrefour, Henkel, Kraft International, Metro Group, Nestle, P&G and Rewe Group have all actively participated in this joint collaborative effort and agreed on the content of the European Guide.
