The Near Field Communication technology (NFCIP-1) jointly developed by Sony Corp. and Royal Philips Electronics has received approval under standard ISO/IEC IS 18092 of the ISO and the IEC. Philips' Mifare technology and Sony's FeliCa contactless IC card technology are included within the ISO/IEC IS 18092 standard.

Sony and Philips reached an agreement in 2002 on the development of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. In order to promote NFC worldwide, the two companies submitted the draft specifications to ECMA International, the organization responsible for standardizing information and communication systems. After developing open technical specifications, NFC-IP1 was approved under EMCA-340, and subsequently submitted by EMCA International to ISO/IEC. It has now received approval under ISO/IEC IS 18092.

The NFC chip is expected to be deployed in a range of devices including mobile phones, digital still cameras, PDAs, PCs, among others.
