16. Can I use another barcode supplier to verify the barcode and use this result in Validoo Q-lab?

Yes, but the following conditions must be met:

  • ISO-certified verification equipment (ISO/IEC 15426-1) must have been used
  • The barcode must have been verified in accordance with “ISO/IEC 15416”
  • The barcode must meet GS1 General Specifications
  • The barcode must contain the same GTIN that was sent to Validoo Q-lab
  • The barcode must be a production sample

The company conducting the verification must send a verification report and a photograph of the verified barcode to customerservice@gs1.se in order for the result to be accepted by Validoo Q-lab. The photograph of the barcode is needed to verify that the barcode is not a prototype.
