Validate GS1 Company Prefix Ownership
Due to online misinformation and a growing number of unauthorized UPC resellers, the marketplace is polluted with UPC barcodes with duplicate GS1 Company Prefixes. Confused companies either makeup UPC numbers or unknowingly buy UPCs from a company that is not GS1 US. Incorrect and duplicate GS1 Company Prefixes cause significant supply chain problems which can impact products, shipments and coupons.
Click on the link below to affirm the validity of the UPC ownership from a UPC (or GTIN). You can search by UPC (GTIN-12), EAN-8 (GTIN-8), or Carton Code (GTIN-14).
Since the inception of the UPC, Bar Code Graphics has been working with retailers, manufacturers, and global numbering authorities. GS1 standards enable companies to properly identify their products so they can be sold in stores worldwide and online. Our GS1 Barcode Service includes one-on-one support from an assigned consultant who facilitates the entire process of obtaining GS1 Company Prefixes (when necessary), UPC/GTIN management, and marking your products/shipments with compliant GS1 barcodes. In addition, verified printed barcode labels and/or high-resolution digital barcode files (.eps) are included. For an overview of the entire GS1 UPC process, please visit http://www.gs1-us.info/gs1/
