Research Report

Global Guide to Radio-Frequency (RF) Equipment

The exponential growth of the Internet of Things is the result of manufacturers adding wireless modules into all manner of products, which subjects those products to RF equipment regulation by countries worldwide. In all nations, regulatory authorities can (and often do) impose significant penalties on manufacturers, importers and other responsible parties that supply noncompliant RF products to the market. Accordingly, The CommLaw Group has prepared this guide, which provides high-level regulatory overviews of RF equipment regulations and compliance requirements from around the globe.

Managing Medical Device Loan Kits via RFID
In Australia and New Zealand, the orthopedic implant industry is successfully using RFID to manage loan-kit, or short-term consignment, of medical devices. Initially installed by medical device companies, the project was ultimately extended to include hospitals. The use of RFID prevents the shipment of incomplete kits or expired items to hospitals, and increases a manufacturer's ability to manage urgent shipment requests. This video, recorded at RFID in Health Care 2015, explains how the technology creates a clear record of chain of custody, providing complete, accurate and transparent data, and how it reduces disputes surrounding item usage between suppliers and hospitals.
