The EAN-Code is an international article numeration. It is also known as the Bar-Code.
The international EAN-organization provides valid numbers worldwide, which are mechanically readable and free of overlaps to hamper expensive transmission of article descriptions. The EAN-Code composes of seven digits; the 5 digit internal article numbers and the number that the recording medium manufacturer allocates and finally the access code.
Example: 40 12345 67890 1
- 4012345: Basis number – out of that:
- 40: international prefix for Germany
- 12345: international Location number
