GS1128 Barcode

Keywords: GS1128, UCC/EAN-128

GS1-128, formerly known as UCC/EAN-128 Symbology, is a variant of the Code 128 Symbology.
The UCC EAN System was established by Uniform Code Council (UCC) in 1973.
In 1977, the European Article Numbering Association (EAN International) designed a compatible system for use in Europe.

The pattern of using FNC1 right after start character is reserved for GS1128.
According to the specification, a GS1128 symbol has the following characteristics:

Space is excluded from encodable charset.
The maximum data characters can be encoded is 48.
Including quiet zones, the maximum physical length is 165 mm (6.5 in.).
The minimum height of the symbol is 32 mm (1.25 in.).
The Human Readable Text of the data must be shown below the symbol. Start, stop, FNC1 character, and check digit are not shown.
Application Identifiers (AIs) define the interpretation of data.

GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) is flexible. It is used for the representation of Element Strings using EAN-UCC System Application Identifiers. It is not intended to be read on items passing through the Point-of-Sale.

The system provides a series of Application Identifiers (AIs) that define the interpretation of data.

This is a list of all GS1128 Application Identifiers (AI).
