UPN Barcodes Data Matrix Barcodes

UPN Codes are Barcodes required for the Retail (Point-of-Sale) Identification of Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, Surgical Products, and some Beauty & Cosmetic Products. The codes are scanned at pharmacies, cash registers, dispensaries, and other end-user locations.

Data Matrix are Barcodes required under the FDA UDI rules for medical devices and suggested for the Traceability Identification of Pharmaceuticals (under the several initiatives including the Canadian Pharmaceutical Bar Coding Project), Surgical Products, and some Beauty & Cosmetic Products.

  • UPN / UPC / EAN / GTIN of the product
  • Lot or batch number within which a product was manufactured
  • Serial number of a specific product
  • Expiration date of a specific product

What is a UPN barcode and how does it work?

  The UPN (Universal Product Number), a product identifier used to uniquely identify products in the health industry, is a practical and efficient means of managing product data. UPN codes identify pharmaceuticals, medical devices, surgical products, and other health-related items in the supply chair in order to simplify distribution. The UPN code is scanned by the end-user, primarily at retail (point-of-sale), at the cash register, pharmacy, dispensary, etc.

Exporters: If your medical devices or surgical products are exported outside of the USA or Canada, you will require an EAN Code. Contact our representatives for assistance if you require UPN or any other medical barcode format for your target market.

Canadian Clients: It is acceptable to use a standard UPC Code in place of a UPN code if your company does not have a U.S. NDC or NHRIC Number.
