Will My Barcodes Be Registered in an Official Database?
No – At this stage there is no official international database. Basically all numbers come from an international database, and the barcode sellers (GS1 and barcode resellers), are responsible for making sure each number is only sold once. It is then up to suppliers (you) to ensure that each barcode is only assigned to one product. There are various different barcode databases available, which can help raise the internet profile of your product. This is an additional service that we offer, and is not necessary for your barcode to work. Please see barcode registration for details.
