Barcode Verification

GS1

GSI standard logistic tunnel white package scan

The application standard for retail point of sale and distribution

Some industry committees have developed application standards mandating that their manufactures comply with their rules for barcode marking. An application standard outlines what type of symbology is acceptable, what ISO standard to grade against, the minimum acceptable grade, aperture, x-dimension range, lighting required, and how the data within the barcode must be formatted.

Barcodes in retail, transportation, and food service use a standard provided by GS1 to regulate barcode quality in their industry. Global anufacturers must register with GS1 to receive their individual GTIN number, which ensures that no two product barcodes of the same symbology contain the same data. Manufacturers must follow the data formatting stated in the GS1 standard and meet the print quality required.
