GS1 standards for barcodes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags

GS1 data capture standards currently include definitions of barcodes and RFID data carriers which allow GS1 Identification Keys and supplementary data to be affixed directly to a physical object, and standards that specify consistent interfaces to readers, printers, and other hardware and software components that connect the data carriers to business applications.

A barcode represents numbers or letters in a machine-readable format that can be decoded, recorded and processed by a computer system when read by a barcode scanner.

GS1 barcodes carry information, including GS1 Identification Keys, about physical objects like products, assets, logistic units and shipments, or services and locations at any point in the supply chain. They can also include extended identifiers such as batch/lot number and expiry dates for food traceability and safety.

The GS1 System provides several types of barcodes including one-dimensional (1D) barcodes such as GS1 EAN/UPC, GS1-128, ITF-14 and GS1 DataBar, and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes such as GS1 DataMatrix and GS1 QR Code etc. Each is designed for use in a different situation.

The Electronic Product Code (EPC) is syntax for unique identifiers assigned to physical objects, locations or other identifiable entity playing a role in business operations.

The Electronic Product Code (EPC) is syntax for unique identifiers assigned to physical objects, locations or other identifiable entity playing a role in business operations.

When unique EPCs are encoded on to individual RFID tags, radio waves can be used to capture the unique identifiers at extremely high rates and at distances without line-of-sight contact.
