      GS1 Databar

      Simple Steps to Set Up for Databar

      Step 1

      Join GS1 Australia and obtain a GS1 Company Prefix at

      Step 2

      Assign a GTIN* for each variety. This uniquely identifies each product as your own. It’s a good idea to retain the PLU code on the label, as some retailers may not have the capability to scan GS1 DataBar just yet.

      * A GTIN is a globally unique 14-digit number used to identify each individual product item.

      Step 3

      Provide your GTIN’s and corresponding PLU codes to the retailer so that they can enter these in their POS system.

      Step 4

      Talk to Ben or Kylie at J-Tech Systems for help with designing your unique Databar fresh produce labels. They know about label sizes, legibility, colours, minimum barcode height requirements and will check and scan the barcode artwork for you to make sure its accurate.

      Step 5

      Once the label artwork is complete, you’ll send the sample to GS1 Australia for barcode testing. This makes sure your product meets all the industry specifications and scans correctly the first time.

      Step 6

      Once the testing is completed and you have the interim report from GS1 Australia, give the report to J-Tech Systems for label printing. We’ll check and test the labels during production for scan ability and accuracy before delivering the completed labels to you.
