Barcode Compliance – Where Do You Stand?


Barcode Compliance

Do You Know Which Of These 3 Barcodes Are In Compliance?

Answer is………

You cannot really check a barcode using only your eyes.  It takes tools like SCANALYST 3 to do the job.

NONE of these 3 great looking barcodes are in compliance!

One is formatted incorrectly.  That means the data in the barcode cannot be interpreted, it is useless.  In this example the bad data is the Expiration Date for a perishable product.  It could have been on packaged chicken or fish.

Another barcode is of substandard quality, below the minimum of ISO 1.5.  This means that it may not be able to be read by all scanners.  Efficiency, ease of use and potentially accuracy have been compromised. Imagine a nurse administering to a patient and having to deal with a barcode that refuses to be scanned.

Finally, one has data that does not match the human readable information below the barcode.  That means that something really bad may have happened.  Some paid the correct amount and others did not.  Some folks got the right item/medication while others did not.
