He became convener of ISO/IEC JTC1 SC31 WG3/SG1 "RFID performance and conformance test methods", which continued its work as WG4/SG6 since 2008. The group developed the performance and conformance standards ISO/IEC 18046 and ISO/IEC 18047 applicable for ISO/IEC 18000 RFID testing. Currently, he is driver in standardization in ISO/IEC, CENELEC, ETSI and EPCglobal.

In 2011 he received the IEC 1906 Award[1] by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as Expert of ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information Technology.
