As retailers continue to experience problems in the quality and accuracy of bar codes on products they receive into their supply chain, both retail packs and on traded units, so their claims for consequential loss from their suppliers continue to increase. It is even more important for manufacturers and packaging suppliers to have the right procedures in place to ensure that their bar codes are accurate for the product to which they are applied and that they meet the international standards for their overall quality.
We offer on site audits of your bar code processes and procedures, following the requirements of the major retailers and in conjunction with the guidelines specified by GS1, the Global Standards agency in their 'Bar Coding Getting it Right' manual.
Have confidence that the bar codes you produce will be accepted by your customers. Bar Code Systems provides on-site audits covering all aspects of bar code production, checking and record keeping. If you would like a bar code audit, either call or email us.
We can provide tailored, on-site training covering all aspects of bar code production quality and verification systems. Whatever your needs, we can formulate training for your staff to cover bar code basics, retailer requirements, ISO/CEN and ANSI standards, the verification process, how to analyse verification results, what problems to look for and how to avoid them, types of verifiers, etc.
Training can be targeted towards production staff and for Quality Assurance departments at Beginner and Advanced levels. To discuss a training program, call or email us.
