GS1 Company Prefix Ownership

Validate GS1 Company Prefix Ownership

Due to online misinformation and growing number of unauthorized UPC resellers, the marketplace is polluted with UPC barcodes with duplicate GS1 Company Prefixes. Confused companies either make up UPC numbers or unknowingly buy UPCs from a company which is not GS1 US. Incorrect and duplicate GS1 Company Prefixes cause significant supply chain problems which can impact products, shipments and coupons.
