There are 10 steps to follow when creating barcodes for your company.
Before your company can begin using barcodes, you must create the numbers that go inside the barcode. Theses numbers are called GS1 identification numbers. The first step inbuilding an identification number is to obtain a GS1 Company Prefix from GS1 US. GS1 Company Prefixes are used to identify over 1 million companies today and form the foundation of uniquely identifying items in the value chain. To obtain your GS1 Company Prefix, please complete a Partner Connections memership application at www.gs1us.org/barcode.
