Google Joins NFC Forum

Google is joining the NFC Forum, a non-profit industry association that advances the use of near field communication (NFC) technology, as a principal member. CSR and Intel, formerly associate members, have raised their membership status to the principal level.

Principal membership is the second-highest level of membership in the NFC Forum, with each principal member entitled to appoint a voting representative to each of the technical, marketing, and compliance committees and working groups. As principal members, organisations may also participate in the NFC Forum testing and certification programme using their own in-house test labs.

“The NFC Forum thrives on the active participation of global industry leaders and innovators such as CSR, Google, and Intel,” said Koichi Tagawa, chairman of the NFC Forum. “Their energy, ideas, and influence will greatly enhance the work of the Forum, as will the support of our new associate, implementer and non-profit members from around the world.”
