Company Prefix Licencing

A Company Prefix Licence is a globally unique number that identifies your company.

With a valid annual Company Prefix Licence, Canadian businesses of all sizes can create industry-compliant symbols and bar codes, enabling their products to be traded in Canada and around the world. Licensed company prefixes are used in the identification of products at all levels of packaging.

GS1 Canada is the only authorized source to issue Company Prefix Licences in Canada. When you register a company prefix, your company has access to the membership levels listed below, as well as the associated benefits.
