Abstract This report was prepared for discussion at the Tripartite Meeting on the Social and Labour Implications of the Increased Use of Advanced Retail Technologies held in Geneva, 18-20 September 2006. It provides a regional overview of the retail trade worldwide and examines the implications of the introduction of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. A section on occupational safety and health suggests that there is a lack of authoritative data on the potential hazards of these systems and recommends the collection of exposure data.
