Legitimate barcode reseller:

As a reseller of barcodes, International Barcodes Ltd is differentiated from the largest global barcode body, which is a licensor of barcodes. International Barcodes Ltd. qualifies as an authentic, legitimate barcode reseller by virtue of multiple verifiable criteria, including but not limited to

  • International Barcodes Ltd resells only barcode numbers that originated from the Uniform Code Council (hereinafter referred to as “UCC”) before this body became Global Standards 1. These barcode numbers were secured from the UCC by UCC Members prior to the 2002 UCC Class Action Lawsuit brought successfully by UCC Members against the UCC, which action determined that barcode numbers in possession of UCC Members at the time, and as sold by members at the time, would continue to be accepted by the UCC as authentic, legitimate, legal, and globally unique.
  • International Barcodes Ltd has not breached or been prosecuted for any laws relating to barcode licensing, regulation, or sales, and has no legal precedent of illegitimate barcode number sales.
  • International Barcodes Ltd is a registered business with verifiable employees, physical address and premises, current functional phone number, and public email contact information.
  • International Barcodes Ltd conducts business and communications through a head office website and multiple International Barcodes Network (hereinafter referred to as “IBN”) member websites, and in no way disguises its online presence or interactions, nor does it conduct business exclusively through proxies such as auction websites or public-sales websites.

Using and/or accessing the website after a change in “effective date of terms of use” constitutes an acceptance of the new terms of use, regardless of whether you have read the updated terms of use.
