Will My Barcodes Be Registered in an Official Database?
If you buy a “Barcode Package” from us this includes “barcode registration” which means your barcode is eligible for free registration in the official International Barcodes Database as well as a number of other databases online.
It’s important to know that barcode registration is optional – it is not required. There is no national or international official barcode databases where all retail barcode numbers have to be registered. People can optionally choose to register their barcode numbers in one of the online barcode/product databases (some are free and some require a payment). Every database out there has limitations, there is no completely comprehensive barcode database available that has up-to-date ownership information. The reason for this is that many barcode numbers change ownership from time to time (either when they are sold, or the company they belong to is sold).
