What is a GS1 company prefix?

To identify products or items you sell, you’ll need a unique number, and each number must start with your GS1 Company Prefix.

Your Company Prefix will contain between 6 and 11 digits – depending on how many GTINs you need. You can use your prefix to create different types of numbers depending on whether you’re identifying products, cases, pallets, assets, locations or other items.
