The prefix code ‘890’ with the barcode symbol is a Registered Trade Mark of GS1 India.  Only subscribers of GS1 India are permitted to use it in generation of unique identifiers for their products/consignments, legal/functional entities, fixed/returnable assets etc.

GS1 India reserves the right to initiate legal action against unauthorized use of ‘890’ as the prefix code by any company/organisation in India or overseas which could include withdrawal of their products from National/International markets.

Each subscriber company is allocated a GS1 Company Prefix (GCP). Using this prefix number,subscriber companies are in a position to generate the full range of GS1 keys for identification of their products, assets, locations etc. These keys can be used in Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technologies like barcodes and RFID.

GS1 India allocates and administers the GS1 Company Prefix (GCP) numbers it provides to its subscriber companies.
