Code128 barcodes and UCC-GS1 128 Barcodes read the same

Version 3

    Problem:

    • I cannot distinguish between Code128 barcodes and UCC-GS1 128 Barcodes


    Resolution:

     

    This is known problem, however it is due to the fact that the Barcodes are exactly the same please see the explaination below:

     

    In 2006 the Uniform Code Counsel (UCC), changed their name to GS1. In doing so the industry standard for all UCC type bar codes are now GS1 barcodes. The physical makeup of the bar codes being scanned are the exact same bar codes.

    This page gives the reason for the change:
