Implanting of Subcutaneous Identification Devices in Individuals

On June 12, 2018, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed legislation (H.B. 1372) prohibiting the implanting of subcutaneous identification devices in individuals. Specifically, a partnership, limited liability company, corporation, and any other organization, including for-profit and not-for-profit entities and the government, may not require, coerce, or compel an individual to undergo the subcutaneous (under the skin) implanting or other internal or external bodily possession of an identification device. An identification device is any item, application, or product that is passively or actively capable of transmitting personal information, including, but not limited to, devices using radio frequency technology.

The law also includes definitions, exceptions, penalties, and statute of limitations for actions.

The law is effective January 1, 2019.
