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.

You can see the blocks of numbers (GTINs) that have been allocated to your company in your MyGS1 account.

Blocks of numbers will have different length company prefix numbers according to the numbering requirements. Company prefix numbers from GS1 New Zealand are 7, 8, 9 or 10 digits in length, starting with 94. The length of the prefix is dependent on the number of GTINs in the block.

If more than one block of numbers has been allocated to your company, then any of the company prefix codes are 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 )
