We’re a not-for-profit standards organisation, owned and governed by our members. We have a strong focus on connecting businesses to streamline processes and optimise ecosystems (like supply chains) to improve efficiencies and save our members time and money.
Membership has many annual benefits including free technical support and barcode testing (verification) as well as 10 free barcode graphics - to get you started correctly and quickly.
To licence our barcodes and purchase any of our global standards and services you’ll need to become a member.
Please note: EAN-13 barcodes should work in North America but only if the retailer's system is set up to take 13-digit numbers. Please check. If not, you’ll need a 12-digit US barcode (a UPC widely accepted there and globally).
