The South Korean Commerce, Industry and Energy Ministry reports that the country's proprietary mobile RFID technology, known as Object Identifier (OID), has been adopted as an international standard by the Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization.

A ministry spokesman said the mobile RFID technology, developed by the state-run Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, allows mobile phones to read a wide range of RFID tags. Through OID-equipped handsets, users can read detailed product data on RFID tags.

With the ISO-standardized RFID technology, South Korea will be able to protect its domestic mobile RFID market, which is expected to reach $752 million in 2010, said the ministry spokesman.

The country's mobile telecommunications service carriers, including SK Telecom and KTF, are now testing the relevant services with various industries, according to the ministry.
