Make sure that your barcodes are easy to read
The GS1 Barcode Verification Service tests the perfect readability of GS1 barcodes and GS1 2D codes on labels and product packaging as well as direct part markings (DPM).
The service checks the print quality, data structure, set-up, and dimensions for conformity with GS1 standards.
Note: We recommend verification if problems occur in scanning the codes. Furthermore, if you pass the verification, you can be sure that you have complied with the GS1 standards.
Proceed as follows:
Send your GS1 barcode / GS1 2D code by post to:
"Barcode Verification Service"
You will receive the GS1 verification report by e-mail within five working days of receipt of your mail. In it you will receive detailed feedback on the result of the verification. This report is available in either German or English and is always a snapshot based on the submitted code.
