    • The Commission said that consumer privacy was in danger if radio frequency identification (RFID) chips were not properly handled. It has just published a formal Recommendation on how the chips should be managed.

      RFID chips are increasingly used in consumer products in shops to help inventory and supply management and other retail logistics. But the Commission has warned that they must be turned off as a matter of course when consumers take goods out of shops.
