What Is a U.P.C. Barcode?
The numbering system and bar symbols were conceived and designed in the early seventies by George J. Laurer on behalf of IBM and presented to the grocery store and food industries as a universal way of keeping track of inventories, prices and manufacturers. It was chosen over many other proposals and has since been accepted and adopted worldwide as a unified product tracking symbol. Most U.P.C. Codes consist of twelve numbers (EAN 13 is the European standard and has 13 numbers); a manufacturer ID number that is assigned by the Council (now GS1) and a product identification number that is assigned by the manufacturer followed by a check digit. There are a few variations on this code as other industries and countries have joined the council.
