19. I have test-scanned my barcodes in a store and did not encounter any problems. Why was my barcode not approved?
A scanner is programmed to find data, even if the barcode contains errors or printing defects. This means that a scanner can sometimes read a barcode even if the barcode contains errors. If the barcode has defects, it means that there is a risk that the scanner will interpret the information incorrectly. It may cause that the scanner read the wrong trade item number and confuse two products with each other.
We check the barcode using verification equipment that indicates whether or not the barcode complies with GS1 standards. If the barcode is in compliance with these standards, you can be sure that the barcode will be able to be read by all scanners and that the information will be interpreted correctly.
