GS1 Data Carriers for automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) are capable of holding varying amounts of data for different business processes and trading requirements. The data encoded in GS1 Data Carriers not only uniquely identifies products at every level of packaging, it provides access to product information and visibility of product movement through the supply chain.

The 9 GS1 Data Carrier families include: EAN, UPC, ITF-14, GS1-128, GS1 Databar, GS1 QR Code and GS1 Data Matrix barcodes, as well as standards for EPC-enabled HF and UHF RFID tags.
