GS1 Prefixes are the only way to uniquely identify your brand in the global supply chain as it is part of every barcode and identification number you create.

                                                                    UPC BARCODE EXAMPLE

                                                                               SSCC EXAMPLE

The GS1 Prefix is not something that you buy and is assigned, but rather something you create and license.

When getting started, one thing you will want to keep in mind are your barcode needs as each size, color, or configuration of your products may require its own barcode.  For more information on getting started and setting up your GS1 company prefix, check out the GS1 Regstrar Website.
