EAN-13 is unique identifiers (barcodes) used to identify new, branded products sold at retail. The products contain

the EAN number or GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) to identify itself.

EAN-8 is an EAN/UPC symbology barcode and is derived from the longer International Article Number (EAN-13) code.

It was introduced for use on small packages where an EAN-13 barcode would be too large; for example on cigarettes, pencils, and chewing gum packets. It is encoded identically to the 12 digits of the UPC-A barcode, except that it has 4 (rather than 6) digits in each of the left and right halves.

Valid characters: 0123456789

GTIN-13 number encoded in EAN-13 barcode. The first digit is always placed outside the symbol; additionally a right

">" indicator is used to indicate a "Quiet Zone" that is necessary for barcode scanners to work properly.

EAN-8 barcodes begins with a 2- or 3-digit GS1 prefix (which is assigned to each national GS1 authority) followed by

a 5- or 4-digit item reference element depending on the length of the GS1 prefix), and a checksum digit.

EAN - European Article Number, but is now referred to as The International Article Number. It is a standard

describing abarcode symbology and numbering system used in global trade to identify a specific retail product type, in a specific packaging configuration, from a specific manufacturer. EAN barcodes are used worldwide for lookup at retail point of sale, each retail product has its unique EAN-13 number.

EAN barcodes only represent the digits 0–9, it cannot represent other characters.

The most commonly used EAN standard is the thirteen-digit EAN-13, the less commonly used 8-digit EAN-8 barcode

was introduced for use on small packages, where EAN-13 would be too large. 2-digit EAN-2 and 5-digit EAN-5 are supplemental barcodes, placed on the right-hand side of EAN-13 or UPC. These are generally used for periodicals like magazines or books, to indicate the current year's issue number; and weighed products like food, to indicate the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

Calculation of checksum digit

The checksum is calculated as sum of products - taking an alternating weight value (3 or 1) times the value of each data digit. The checksum digit is the digit, which must be added to this checksum to get a number divisible by 10 (i.e. the additive inverse of the checksum, modulo 10). See ISBN-13 check digit calculation for a more extensive description and algorithm. The Global Location Number(GLN) also uses the same method.

The different of EAN and UPC (Universal Product Code):

They are both Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), with the difference being UPCs are one digit shorter (12) and are more commonly used in the United States and Canada.

History:

In 1977 the EAN code was used by 12 countries (all the countries of the European Community). Today, use of the EAN code has spread to all west European countries, USA, Canada, Australia and Japan. Today the EAN is called GTIN (Global Trade Item Number).
