Barcoding Tags

When in comes to barcoding tags, they often need to have unique codes to identify asset. Therefore, it is necessary to have the correct coding structure. Consequently, if the code needs to be unique then it needs to be registered with GS1, the world wide standards organisation for such codes. It has to be printed on the right media, e.g. paper, laminated, plastic coated, for appropriate protection during use. Finally, it needs to use the correct adhesive to stay permanently attached. Torchwood are registered with GS1 with full "Solution Partner Status". Therefore, we are highly qualified to advise on the use of, and the provision of bar codes and barcoding tags labelling.
