Barcode Integrity -
Beware of Unauthorised GS1 Barcode Numbers

GS1 Singapore is the only recognised body in Singapore authorised to issue and administer the Global GS1 barcoding standards and systems. There have been no other appointed resellers and members will have to be careful when purchasing barcodes from unauthorised sources including websites that claim to be resellers of GS1 Singapore. These unauthorised sources are mis-representing themselves as GS1 Singapore and are therefore “shady”.

Unauthorised barcode number sellers potentially undermine the integrity of the GS1 system. Please be aware that if you obtain your barcode numbers from an unauthorised source, you may suffer losses if you need to re-label or repackage your products, or if your products are rejected by retailers, as well as face possible legal charges.


If in doubt, please contact GS1 Singapore at 6826 3077 or email us at contact@gs1.org.sg.

Recognising GS1 Barcodes

The GS1 13-digit barcode numbers allocated to each companies begins with the GS1 prefix "888". The allocation of the numbers are as follows:
  • 888 = GS1 Prefix (Issued by GS1 Singapore)
  • MMMMMMIII* = GS1 Company Prefix Number 'MMMMMM' & Item Reference "III" (Issued by GS1 Singapore and each individual member company respectively)
  • C* = Check Digit Number (Calculated based on the preceding 12 digits)
*alpahbets are for representation only

In order to safeguard your brands and products, validate your barcode numbers using the GEPIR system. The free GEPIR service is available for access on the 
web. Alternatively, you can download the iGEPIR mobile application free from  and .

2D scanners pave the way for faster, more accurate information capture

Article written by:






Mr Wayne Harper,
Senior Technical Director,
Zebra Technologies Asia Pacific

"Imagine a world in which there are no barcodes, and the inconveniences that would ensue. There would be long lines at the supermarket; there would not be e-tickets to movies, games, or concerts; in a business environment, warehouse and retail staff would have to spend hours on end working to track the inbound and outbound products moving around."

The purpose of this article is to discuss the anatomy of a barcode, the benefits of 2D scanners in the retail environment and why 2D barcodes and scanners are the way forward.

Amongst being able to store more data and its other benefits, 2D barcodes enable the speeding up of workflows while maintaining accuracy, as data entry is done quickly and effortlessly by scanning – and not manually typed. This reduces costly mistakes that may be introduced by human input.
