Register a company prefix licence issued before 1997

A company prefix that was issued by the Product Code Council before March 31, 1997 is licensed in perpetuity and is not subject to annual renewal.

However, to gain access to ECCnet implementation services and GS1 Canada member benefits, your organization's company prefix must be registered with GS1 Canada. This registration must be annually renewed  to maintain access to ECCnet implementation services and GS1 Canada member benefits.

All company prefixes are tracked through GS1 Canada to ensure they are globally unique. GS1 Canada membership benefits include access to ECCnet implementation services including ECCnet Registry, and Image & Validation services. GS1 Canada members also have access to extensive information and education on global standards for bar coding and e-commerce.
