GS1 Ireland does not return samples sent for verification, unless otherwise stated. Samples will only be returned it if is specifically requested. If you require your samples to be returned you must advise in writing that you want your samples returned and send with the verification application form a return label and a prepaid courier ticket. If those are not included with the samples, samples will be disposed of accordingly.


A barcode printed on artwork uses different materials and different print processes than the finished product.  A danger therefore exists that the finished bar code may have different reflective properties and might return different test results.
