Utah’s House of Representatives passed the first-ever RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) privacy bill this week, 47-23. The Utah bill – Radio Frequency Identification – Right to Know Act (HB.251) will take effect May 5, 2005, if it is approved by the Utah state Senate and Utah Gov. Olene S. Walker. The bill “requires a product containing a radio frequency identification tag to contain a label describing the radio frequency tag” and to allow the tag to be disabled “prior to the completion of sale unless the consumer chooses to leave it active”. The bill would allow a logo to be placed on packaging to identify that an item contained an RFID tag, as long as an explanation of what the logo means is placed near the goods in a prominent place, and of sufficient size so that consumers can easily see it.
