Get your barcodes reviewed

Make sure your barcodes work every time.

When you create your first barcodes there can be a lot to take in.

You don’t want to make any mistakes – imagine the cost of re-packaging all products if the barcodes don’t scan?

We’re on hand to help you get the best out of the process with our barcode image review service. We’ll identify any errors and give you a report detailing areas for improvement.

What we check

What we check

We’ll check your barcode in detail with a verifier that meets the latest global standards, making sure that:

  • The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) or Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) is structured correctly
  • The barcode is the right format, size and position
  • Appropriate colours are used
  • Your label design allows for accurate scanning

Then we’ll give you a report outlining any recommended improvements, along with support for whatever you need to do.

I would like to thank GS1 UK for their excellent service. The added-value activities have benefited me tremendously, particularly the barcode review service which has helped me to understand how to create barcodes and has given me confidence that my trading partners will scan them successfully – first time and every time. The responsiveness and advice given by the GS1 UK were second to none.”
