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.
  • GS1 Australia accepts digital files for Interim Barcode reports (ISO grades/print quality standards are not assessed/reported). Files must be in PDF format with the barcode at actual size. To have your digital files tested please email us. You should also include a covering letter with your details or a completed Barcode Testing and Photography order form. See also our barcode testing checklist for more information on submitting items for testing.

Benefits of Barcode Check

Save time and money
Avoid having to re-design, re-print, or recall products due to ineffective or unworkable barcodes.

Ensure better relationships with customer
Many retailers are increasingly intolerant of products that cause scanning errors. Several also now require GS1 Australia Barcode Check as a mandatory step in the supply chain.

Service you can trust
When you turn to GS1 Australia to test your barcodes, you're choosing the world's largest authority on barcode numbering. You can also rest assured that we test our barcodes using a rigorous ISO 15416 verification (testing) method and check for compliance to GS1 standards.

What some customers have to say about GS1 Australia Barcode Check

The Barcode Check service at GS1 Australia saved us time and money and gave us a level of confidence that we had not previously had. If our barcode had not been to specification, it would've impacted our ability to effectively trade and get products on the shelves for the consumer.
