Bar Coding Services
The goal of the Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture of Tripoli & North Lebanon is to better service its local business community as we have made it our responsibility to assist companies in North Lebanon to accompany the technological progress taking place in the world today and implement new methods and procedures that would support the advancement of the national economy.
For this purpose, we have delivered a new service in cooperation with GS1 Lebanon to facilitate electronic commerce and enable northern – Lebanese companies to use for their own benefit as well as for the benefit of national economy.
The GS1 system originated in the United States and was established in 1973 by the Uniform Code Council (UCC).Following the success of this UCC system, the European Article Numbering Association (EAN), was established in 1977. In 2004 EAN international and the UCC merged to form a new organization GS1.
The GS1 system provides the use of unambiguous numbers called GS1 identification keys to identify goods, services, assets locations and documents worldwide.
These numbers can be represented in GS1 Barcodes symbols to enable their electronic reading wherever required in business processes; the system is designed to overcome the limitations of using company, organization, or sector specific coding systems and to make trading more efficient and responsive to customers.
