Ethical Issues of Radio Frequency Identification Chips Implanted in Human Bodies: A Review


Objectives: This study belongs to the overview of an IT innovation technology known as “Radio Frequency Identification” (RFID) and its implantation in human bodies.

Methods/analysis: This study provides critical analysis and review on ethical issues of RFID chips implanted in human bodies. Although there are some certain benefits to use this innovation in human bodies but on the other side its usage has very severe health impacts on human life. This study deals with RFID ethical issues, boundaries and constraints which confined its use.

Findings: The major outcome of this study is to discuss and highlight these ethical issues and challenges due to which the deployment and implementation of this technology has become a controversial and debatable issue. Also focus on “legislation deficiencies” lying in RFID usage and suggest recommendations to improve it, so that its usage may continue for the betterment of mankind.

Novelty /improvement: This article provides cutting edge knowledge on ethical issues of RFID chips implanted in human bodies for researchers of this domain.

Keywords: RFID Legislation, Ethical Issues, Chip Implantation.
