Although we are the go to source for UPC implementation, many of our GS1 Service/Support clients rely on our consultants for correct identification for various GTIN packaging levels. Retailers and online marketplaces rely on barcodes and pack level identification for efficient supply chain processing. The GS1 General Specifications and GTIN Management Rules are extremely detailed so it is important that suppliers understand exactly what is required of them.
Please review the following packaging level examples and understand that there are established GTIN identification guidelines for each.
GS1 Support programs are utilized by companies who do not have a GS1 trained employee on staff or a dedicated team to address the item and carton identification requirements for their trading partners. In addition to personal ongoing assistance with GTIN (all level) assignments and product data uploads, the bundled service includes a product credit which can be used for high-resolution .eps barcode files, printed barcode labels or ISO/ANSI barcode testing.
The GS1 Support Service fee is based on the total number items available with your Company Prefix. To learn more, please visit www.barcode.graphics/gs1-upc-barcode-support/.
