MESNAC Plays A Leading Role in Formulating Four RFID Tyre Tags International Standards
——The Four RFID Tyre Tags International Standards Kick-off Meeting was Held in Brussels
From July 11th to July 14th, The Four RFID Tyre Tags International Standards Kick-off Meeting was held in Brussels. The formulation of four RFID tyre tags international standards is initiated by China and mainly drafted by MESNAC.
The four proposed RFID tyre tags standards are Radio frequency identification (RFID) tyre tags, Embedding methods for radio frequency identification(RFID) tyre tags, Testing methods for radio frequency identification(RFID) tyre tags, Coding for radio frequency identification (RFID) tyre tags. They are the first batch of standards from China tyre industry that are officially approved by ISO to start the project. Meanwhile, the initiated standards drafted by MESNAC are expected to become the first ISO standards to regulate the application of tyre-use RFID tags.
The four international standard were officially filed for application in June 2015 and ISO/TC31/WG10 Workgroup was established on October 6th 2015. The Convener of the Workgroup is Ms. Dong Lanfei from MESNAC, representing China through SAC_TC19; the Co-convener of the Workgroup is Mr. Pierre Loiret from Michelin, representing France through AFNOR.
At the kick-off meeting of ISO/TC31/WG10, 24 experts coming from China, France, U.S., Italy, Germany and UK attended the meeting. The kick-off meeting won great support from National Technical Committee 19 on Tyres and Rims of Standardization Administration of China (SAC_TC19), The European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization (ETRTO) and Association Française de Normalization (AFNOR).
The kick-off meeting was chaired by Ms. Dong Lanfei. At the meeting, experts from all parties expressed in detail their opinions and suggestion on the drafts of four RFID tyre tags international standards. The kick-off meeting concluded with the consensus between experts from different countries. The second meeting of ISO/TC31/WG10 Workgroup is expected to be held in December; by then, workgroup experts will continue the discussion and review on the drafts of four RFID standards and aim to promote the work to progress from the WD (Workgroup Draft) stage to CD (Committee Draft) stage.
MESNAC’s initiative on four RFID tyre tags international standards shows its ambition to speed up the application of RFID technology in tyre and is of great significance to the technical progress of the tyre industry.
