GS1-128 Labeling Regulations
GS1-128 labels are perfect for printing Application Identifiers (AIs), Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCCs), shipping carrier routing barcodes, and more. Formerly known as EAN-128 or UCC-128 labels, they are also used for ship-from and ship-to addresses, carrier routing barcodes, Trading Partner Information, and final destination barcodes with text.
While the size of each individual GS1-128 label is determined by the data included therein, there are two standard label sizes for printing your GS1-128 labels. GS1 dictates that most of the business requirements can be met with the following label sizes:
4" x 6" - This "compact label" is ideal for applying case labels. It typically holds the SSCC, or the SSCC plus a limited amount of additional data.
6" x 8" - This "large label" is suitable for applying to pallets and works with additional data such as trade item data.
