Barcodes of the countries

A barcode is placed on the product and encrypts stored information about its origins. The standard barcode EAN-13 consists of 13 digits, the first three of which are the codes of the manufacturing countries. Then follows a company code, a product code and a check digit for protection against counterfeiting.

What is a country bar code

Suppose we have a product in our hands and see its barcode - a notable rectangle composed of black vertical lines. To determine from which country it was imported, it is necessary to look at the numbers below this box. The first three numbers are the country code. And the decoding is presented in the table below. But do not be deluded! In fact, the real origin of the product may not correspond with what is written on the barcode. For example, the manufacturer can be registered in one country and the assembly plant can be located in another. Or it can be an international company, covering several countries. Or a subsidiary company. There are many different nuances, and many manufacturers use them as a ploy for better trade promotion.

You can find the appropriate country and its code in the table below, and also you can use the GEO-service: what is a country's barcode?

Other barcodes

Due to historical reasons, the world stage holds some strong players with their own barcodes, them not being independent states or even recognized countries. For example, China's Hong Kong (489) and Macau (958) after returning from a century-old lease maintained extensive financial autonomy. Or also Chinese Taiwan (471), which has been long ago by itself. Numbers from 200 to 299 are reserved for internal needs of the manufacturer, and numbers from 977 to 999 - for books (ISSN), coupons, receipts, etc.
