What is my Company Prefix / Company Code?

You may be asked for your COMPANY PREFIX or COMPANY CODE.
This could be for identification on EDI, or to create an SSCC code.

In your MyGS1 account you can see the range of GTINs that have been allocated to your company.



Companies will be allocated different length company prefix numbers according to their numbering requirements. Company prefix numbers from GS1 New Zealand are 7, 8, 9 or 10 digits in length, starting with 94.

In the example above, the company prefix is 9400163 on the first block, and 9416218 on the second block. Either company prefix code is valid. For SSCCs it does not need to match the company prefix of the GTIN of the products on the pallet. 

On EDI it is recommended you use your NZBN. If your IT department requires a separate mail box for EDI messaging then a GLN can be used.

 

 

 

EDI - Electronic Data Interchange
SSCC - Serial Shipping Container Code
GLN - Global Location Number (shown on your MyGS1 account)
NZBN - New Zealand Business Number (shown on your MyGS1 account, or the NZBN website )
