The Near Field Communication Forum was formed to advance the use of Near Field Communication technology by developing specifications, ensuring interoperability among devices and services, and educating the market about NFC technology. Formed in 2004, the Forum now has 170+ members. Manufacturers, applications developers, financial services institutions, and more all work together to promote the use of NFC technology in consumer electronics, mobile devices, and PCs.

The goals of the NFC Forum are to:

- Develop standards-based Near Field Communication specifications that define a modular architecture and interoperability parameters for NFC devices and protocols
- Encourage the development of products using NFC Forum specifications
- Work to ensure that products claiming NFC capabilities comply with NFC Forum specifications
- Educate consumers and enterprises globally about NFC
