3. Are EPC standards finalized?
The Auto-ID Center developed Class 1 and Class 0 specifications for EPC tags and handed these off to EPC global in September 2003. In June 2004, these two specifications completed EPC global's standardization process and became the first EPC "standards." In December 2004, EPC global's board approved a single second-generation standard that will eventually replace Class 1 and Class 2.
