Manage Your GS1 Company Prefix
Your GS1 Company Prefix is the key element to your company’s unique identification, allowing your business to identify, capture, and share information regarding your products. The prefix can then be used to create:
- GTINs (Global Trade Item Numbers)
- U.P.C. and shipping labels
- EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) communications
- Data synchronization
By helping to ensure that your company information is up to date, you can accurately represent your company, promote traceability of the product throughout the supply chain, and build barcodes that are accepted by retailers globally. If your company has recently undergone a name change or been a part of a merger or acquisition, you will need to update your GS1 Company Prefix registration.
