EAN-13 & EAN-8 Code

The most important fields of application of the EAN code are retail, distribution, and warehousing. There, properties such as prices or quantities are encoded inside the European Article Number (EAN) code. Since they can only store a limited amount of data, EAN codes are not suitable for displaying complex information, as seen in ticketing or parcel shipping.

  • Used worldwide, despite the naming. Only North America provides an exception with its use of the UPC standard.
  • Stores either 13 or 8 digits (EAN-13 vs. EAN-8). Those are restricted to numerical characters.
  • Digits are in the form of the GTIN (Global Trade Identification Number).
  • The last digit serves as a mod10 checksum.
  • EAN codes are defined within the GS1 standard.
