Why do I need to join GS1 UK?


There are other options that are open to you in order to get your products barcoded, however Advance recommend GS1 especially if

you have lots of products that require codes.


GS1 UK licenses unique numbers to identify everything from products to patients.

These numbers are used for bar codes, RFID tags, in electronic communications and for data synchronisation.


On joining GS1 UK you will be given a GS1 company prefix.

This is a unique number that makes your company, and each of its products, instantly recognisable and unmistakable

to your customers (and their customers) around the globe.


Then, for example, using your company prefix you will be able to create unique numbers to bar code products.
