What is Code 128 Barcode Symbology?

Code 128 is a high-density linear barcode symbology defined in ISO/IEC 15417:2007. It is used for alphanumeric or numeric-only barcodes. Code 128 can support any character of the ASCII 128 character set, because of this, Code 128 barcodes can store highly diversified information.

Standards for Code 128 Barcode Symbology

Several standards exist that dictate how Code 128 barcodes should be generated for certain implementations; a few of these include:

  • GS1-128 (previously known as UCC-128 and EAN-128) is defined by GS1 and used to create several types of barcode symbols that include Application Identifiers. Application Identifiers (AIs) define the purpose of the data in the symbol and how it is to be used.
  • ISBT-128 is the global standard for the terminology, identification, coding and labeling of medical products of human origin (including blood, cell, tissue, milk, and organ products). It was developed by the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) 
  • USS Code 128 (Uniform Symbology Specification Code 128) is the published specification for the Code 128 barcode.
  • ISS Code 128 (International Symbology Specification Code 128) is the USS Code 128 barcode symbology with a new feature that allows the encoding of extended ASCII characters for non-English languages.
  • SSCC-18 is a serialized shipping container code label specification.
