What is GS1 Australia Barcode Check?

Quality barcodes help deliver uninterrupted supply chain performance. Testing barcodes prevents the costs associated with non-compliance, and fosters stronger trading partner relationships. We have tested more than 1.5 million barcodes to ensure they scan first time, every time.  

  • It's preferable to submit your barcodes in their final form, however we can also test loose labels and packaging
  • We test on a range of factors - including compliance to global standards, size, colour, print quality, numbering and more
  • Once tested, we will provide you with a GS1 Australia Bar Code Verification Report, indicating the compliance of your barcode and if necessary, any changes you may need to make.
