Corporate Subscription

Meet customers’ supply chain requirements for industry-compliant GS1 bar codes. Once you join GS1 Canada, you receive a Company Prefix Licence to help you create bar codes for only $1,500.

Your Company Prefix Licence is a globally-unique number that accurately identifies your company. Use it to create the numbers that go inside the GS1 bar codes on your products.

GS1 Canada is Canada’s only authorized source for GS1 bar codes. GS1 bar codes comply with global standards, helping you sell your products in Canada and around the world.

As the basis for successful trade relationships, your Company Prefix Licence needs to be renewed each year.

If your organization’s total annual gross sales revenue in Canadian dollars exceeds $5 million, you qualify for Corporate Subscription.  Your Subscription benefits include:

  • A Company Prefix Licence (to be renewed annually)
  • Access to ECCnet Registry and GS1 Canada Images
  • Flexible ECCnet ProSYNC® product data loading software that allows you to load an unlimited number of GTINs into ECCnet Registry (subject to annual software fees)
  • Access to My GS1, GS1 Canada’s subscribers-only website, for up-to-date industry news and tools that enable supply efficiencies.

Why choose GS1 Canada?

Major customers require that you obtain a GS1 Prefix Licence Certificate confirming that you have a valid Company Prefix Licence from GS1 Canada.

* Annual Renewal

Active subscribers (vendors, distributors or retailers) that purchased a Company Prefix Licence after March 31, 1997 must renew it on an annual basis.  Active subscribers that purchased a Company Prefix Licence prior to 1997 own it in perpetuity and only need to register their Company Prefix Licences annually to gain access to Subscription benefits.
