Our barcode verification service ensures the barcode is perfect and scans properly - every time, anywhere in the world.
We can check barcodes on finished products as well as label artwork. We review the product’s physical attributes such as barcode size, shape, colour, print quality and the encoded data. We provide a barcode verification report that outlines the test results for sharing with your retailer if required. Passed verification reports are automatically uploaded to Woolworths NZ (they require a pass before loading the product into their merchandise system). Foodstuffs also ask that you have your barcodes verified.
Interim verification report
We recommend completing an interim verification report using packaging artwork before printing final labels or packaging. This will reduce the risk of any expensive mistakes when it’s time to print finished labels or packaging. Using artwork, we will assess if any important changes need to be made to the barcode. An interim report is not a final report which must be completed.
