EAN 13 barcodes are used to identify saleable units in retail worldwide. EAN stands for European Article Number which has since been replaced with GTIN Global Traded Identification Number, and 13 is the number of digits encoded, 12+1check digit. EAN13 or GTIN13 Barcode standards are defined by GS1, who issue and maintain EAN13 / GTIN13 numbers to manufacturers and suppliers of goods. An EAN8 or GTIN8 barcode is a shorter version, used to identify smaller items, for which an EAN13 would be too large. EAN13 / GTIN13 barcodes are a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code, UPC which was originally introduced in the USA.
