It was the first "point of sale" use of the bar-code scanner technology for price look up at customer chack-out. This was done shortly after the Uniform Product Code Council (UPCC) became the Uniform Code Council, Inc. (UCC).

My source said it was June 1974.

By 1984 I was already repairing them here in the mid Atlantic area and all the major chains had them.

Up here in Canada we have a Scanning Code of Practice. This is a voluntary practice to which most retailers adhere. It promises the customer that all products sold using a scanned UPC symbol will register accurately at the checkout. If an item scans in at a higher price than the shelf indicates, the customer is entitled to get it for free - up to a value of $10.

This involves being diligent in watching when your items are being scanned or in checking your receipt before you leave the store.

The scanning code is supported by the Competition Bureau of Canada.

Anything similar in other countries?
