GS1 Australia is the only GS1 Member Organisation in Australia to license barcodes with the Australian '93' prefix. Our numbers are unique within the GS1 system, and we provide authentic GS1 barcode numbers. Buying barcodes from a non-GS1 Member Organisation can give rise to risk as there is no way to know whether the barcode you're buying has not been previously used in the supply chain. Major Australian and international retailers endorse the use GS1 identification keys and standards.
It is an all too often occurrence that companies come to GS1 after their products are rejected by retailers because the barcode they use doesn't match the product it's on when scanned.

"We verify the authenticity of product identifiers by checking the GS1 database. EANs/UPCs that do not match the information provided by GS1 will be considered invalid. We recommend obtaining your product identifiers directly from GS1 (and not from other third parties selling EAN/UPC licences) to ensure that the appropriate information is reflected in the GS1 database."
