Ecma invites experts from ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 06, ETSI/SCP and the NFC forum to review and provide comments on NFC drafts and publications. After experts register here, they are able to issue, discuss their technical comments using this procedure.

TG19 developed a simple two-wire interface, that connects a (NFC) Radio Frequency front-end and a transceiver, as ECMA-373 (ISO/IEC 28361).

TG19 started working on the signalling interface and protocols for low cost, closely coupled wireless Consumer Electronic (CE) devices in September 2002, click here for a presentation.

TG19 explored the application area of NFC in this document: report (pdf).

National bodies approved the Near Field Communication Interface and Protocol (NFCIP-1) standard ECMA-340 under ISO/IEC JTC 1 fast track approval as ISO/IEC 18092, see also press-release. In June 2005 ETSI endorsed ECMA-340 2 nd edition as EN 302 190 1.1.1.

The December 2003 GA published NFCIP-2 as ECMA-352 and ISO/IEC JTC 1 adopted it as ISO/IEC 21418.

The June 2004 GA published NFCIP-1 - RF Interface Test Methods as ECMA-356, consult Link to non-Ecma site. Ecma is not responsible for the contents of the site.for test setups.

The December 2004 GA published NFCIP-1 - Protocol test methods as ECMA-362, which complements ECMA-356.
