A resource you should know about: GS1
By Packaging World Staff
GS1 US administers the GS1 System of bar-code standards, provides education and support, and connects communities interested in supply chain standards through events and online forums. The organization is neutral and not-for-profit. GS1 Standards provide premier industry resources to help users create, and make the best use of, bar codes and the technical management of bar-code systems.

Here is just a sample of the resources that are available on the Web site:

Data Driver. Data Driver is an online tool for creating, managing, and printing bar codes. It takes users through step-by-step instructions so they can create accurate bar codes for all packaging levels. No technical knowledge is required. Try the tool.

Check Digit Calculator. If you need to calculate a check digit for your GS1 Identification Numbers (GTIN-12, GTIN-13, GTIN-14, SSCC, Global Shipment ID/Bill of Lading, etc.), you need the Check Digit Calculator.

GLN Registry for Healthcare. The GLN Registry for Healthcare offers a comprehensive list of healthcare and healthcare-related facilities in the U.S. with corresponding Global Location Numbers (GLNs). Using the GS1 GLN and the GLN Registry to standardize location identification ensures that the right product arrives at the right place at the right time, facilitates efficient business practices, and drives down supply chain costs.
