Can I test my own barcodes with a scanner?

Not reliably.  Scanners do not all perform the same.  Some may forgive barcode faults that prevent others from scanning the barcode if there is technical fault in it.

Even a technically perfect barcode may contain a number that has a fault.

The GS1 barcode verification test checks the validity and correctness of the number and uses scientific test equipment to assess the technical compliance and scanning capability of the  barcode symbol itself.
