The National Reference Center for RFID (CNRFID), supported by the Directorate-General for Enterprise (DGE), set up a working group to create a repository and good practice guidelines for the Data Protection of Applications of Professional Connected Objects. Nathan Frey, CEO of Air, is a founding member of the workgroup that will focus on the upcoming European Law for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to include the Chart of fundamental rights of the UE (2000/C 364/01)

Art. 8, right to the protection of personal data

  • Everyone has the right of access to data which has been collected concerning him or her, and the right to have it rectified.
  • Compliance with these rules shall be subject to control by an independent authority.
