UCC/EAN Location Code

The UCC/EAN Location Code is a globally unique number for the identification of a legal, functional or physical location. It is comprised (from left to right) of a Numbering Authority Prefix, Company Prefix, Company Number, and a Modulus 10 Check Digit. The Company Prefix is assigned by the Numbering Authority and is unique within the numbering authority. The Company Number is assigned by the company and is unique within that company.

The UCC/EAN Location Code Prefix is the combination of the Numbering Authority Prefix and the Company Prefix; It is globally unique.

The UCC/EAN Location Code Suffix is the combination of the Company Number and the Check Digit. It is only unique when combined with the UCC/EAN Location code Prefix.

The UCC/EAN Global Product ID Prefix is the combination of the Numbering Authority Prefix and a Company Prefix; It is globally unique. Since this prefix may be the same as the one used for location codes the two uses must be delineated.
