Product Code

Overview [1]#

Product Code is a component of the GS1 Global Trade Item Number and is assigned by the manufacturer.

Product Code immediately follows manufacturer code. The total length of Manufacturer Code plus Product Code should be 9 or 10 digits depending on the length of GS1 Prefix (2-3 digits).

In ISBN, ISMN and ISSN, it uniquely identifies the publication from the same publisher; it should be used and allocated by the registered publisher in order to avoid creating gaps; however it happens that a registered book or serial never gets published and sold.
