How is Barcode Verification Used

Printed quality reports help prove compliance, as well as diagnose and fix errors.

Barcode verification guides producers through the marking process to produce readable, high-quality codes

From brand owners and manufacturers to packagers and retailers, people across industries use barcodes to track their products from production to the point of sale. The only way to ensure that a barcode will be readable and function properly along the supply chain is with barcode verification. Barcode verification guides producers throughout the marking process and helps them to prove compliance with quality standards.

Ensure Readability Along the Supply Chain

Barcode verification helps ensure that codes are readable and meet performance requirements in any operation by grading the quality of codes as they are printed. A barcode verifier assigns an overall grade to a code based on measurements of several quality parameters. These parameters measure a number of image-related and data-related factors that affect barcode readers’ abilities to identify and decode a code. Barcode verification is therefore an essential quality control tool for those printing and handling codes, as well as for customers receiving codes, because it ensures a barcode’s complete scannability along the supply chain.

Meet Quality and Industry Standards

For an increasing number of regulated industries, barcode verification also ensures compliance with contract and industry requirements. Barcode verifiers guide producers through the marking process to create codes which meet minimum quality standards and demonstrate compliance with printed quality reports.

Most manufacturers only verify a sample of codes in any batch or run. The sampling standard is determined by the producers’ quality control statistical requirements.
