Universal Product Codes (UPC-A)

For use in North America

UPC-As (or GTIN-12s) are still in use across North America and your trading partner may sometimes request that you use these instead of the standard GTIN-13 that is used globally today.

We can supply you with a prefix for a range of GTIN-12s and you can choose a prefix that allows you to create a range of 1,000, 10,000 or 100,000 numbers.

If you wish to request a UPC-A prefix, please complete and return this form.
