Barcodes Pro - GTIN Standards

Barcode Standards

The 13-digit EAN-13 European Article Number as a GTIN standard consists of these three main components.


The Universal Product Code (UPC) is a barcode symbology that is widely used in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries for tracking trade items in stores.


The European Article Number (EAN) is a Global Trade Item Number standard describing a barcode symbology and numbering system. It's used in global trade to identify a specific retail product type, from a specific manufacturer.


Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) can be used by a company to uniquely identify all of its trade items. GTIN describes a family of EAN and UPC global data structures. For North American companies, the UPC is an existing form of the GTIN.
