All over the
world, manufacturers and retailers rely on the GS1 system. You can trust that
GS1 barcode numbers issued by an authorised GS1 organisation are unique,
accurate, and based on current global standards.
Australia, GS1 Australia administers the GS1 system and is the only authorised source for GS1 barcode
numbers and standards.
numbers allocated to companies by GS1 Australia begin with the prefix 93. Only GS1 Australia is authorised to
provide GS1 barcode numbers with this prefix.
barcode number sellers potentially undermine the integrity of the GS1 system, create confusion in the market and disrupt the functioning of supply chains
in Australia and overseas.
be aware that if you obtain your barcode numbers from an unauthorised source,
you may suffer losses if you need to re-label or repackage your products, or if
your products are rejected by your retail customer.
