Barcode Technology - ITF-14 (SCC-14) Barcode               Hide the description

ITF-14 is the GS1 implementation of an Interleaved 2 of 5 (ITF) bar code to encode a Global Trade Item Number.

ITF-14 symbols are generally used on packaging levels of a product, such as a case box of 24 cans of soup.

The name ITF-14 is a composition of the barcode symbol used: "Interleaved 2 of 5" (Code 25 Interleaved) and the

14 digits: the length of the container symbol. ITF is an abbreviation of "Interleaved Two of Five".

Valid characters: 0123456789

The ITF-14 barcode itself can optionally have a thick solid bar all around the main code. They are called

"bearer-bars". This barcode generator does currently no support these additional bars. They are not required for barcode recognition.

The thick black border around the symbol is called the Bearer Bar. The purpose of a Bearer Bar is to equalise the

pressure exerted by the printing plate over the entire surface of the symbol, and to enhance reading reliability by helping to reduce the probability of misreads or short scans that may occur when the scanner is held to a bar code at too large an angle. Such instances of skewed scanning cause the scanning beam to enter or exit the bar code symbol through the Bearer Bar at its top or bottom edge, forcing the scanner to detect an invalid scan since Bearer Bars are much wider than a legitimate black bar.


ITF-14 is one of the many barcode formats currently in use.

A Barcode is a method of representing data in a visual, machine-readable form.

The barcode formats has two categories:

One-dimensional (1D) --- Barcodes represented data by varying the widths and spacings of parallel lines.

Two-dimensional (2D) --- Using rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns to represented data.

ITF-14 is 1D barcode.

The first digit is the "Logistic Variant", also named as "Packaging indicator".
The next 12 digits are representing the product number. General this the EAN-13 number without the check digit.
The last digit is the check digit.

ITF-14 has 14 digits.

Check digit:

Digits: 0 4 0 0 7 6 3 0 0 0 0 1 1
Weight: 3 1 3 1 3 1 3 1 3 1 3 1 3
Results: 0+4+0+0+21+6+9+0+0+0+0+1+3 = 44
Calculate checksum: The addition to the next multiple of 10. (50)
Check digit 6.

Human Readable:

Most barcodes display their corresponding values below them, which makes it possible to human read and manually  enter the barcode values into the equivalent system when the barcode label is worn out and cannot be read by the barcode scanner.

The Advantages of using barcodes:

If you want to reduce costs and save time, using barcodes is a good choice. Whether you are a company or a non-commercial organization, to improve efficiency and reduce overhead, barcodes are a valuable and viable option, which is economical and reliable.

The barcode system is very versatile, it can be used for any necessary data collection. This may include pricing or inventory information or management information service system. In addition, because barcodes can be affixed to almost any surface, they can be used not only to track the product itself, but also to track the production process, shipments and equipments.

The barcode system provide better data. Because a barcode can store various information such as inventory and pricing, especially when using QR Code, it can store thousands of characters, so the data stored in the barcode can be quickly obtained by the barcode reader, this fast turnaround ensures that time is not wasted on data entry or retrieval. In addition, the barcode can be customized to include other relevant information as needed. They provide fast and reliable data for various applications.

Barcodes are cheap and user-friendly, providing an indispensable tool for tracking data from pricing to inventory. The end result of a comprehensive bar code system is reduced overhead.


FAQ About ITF-14 (SCC-14) Barcode


What is the historical origin of the ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode?

The ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode is an identification code used for commodity transportation packaging. It is a continuous, fixed-length, two-way barcode composed of 14 numeric characters.

Its historical origins date back to 1973, when the U.S. Uniform Code Committee (UCC) developed a barcode capable of representing packaging units to meet the needs of large retailers.

The ITF-14 barcode is a variant of the ITF (Interleaved Two of Five) barcode, which can be represented by EAN/UPC, GS1-128 or DataBar code systems.

The ITF-14 barcode is a barcode used to mark storage and transportation packaged goods. It can be printed directly on corrugated boxes without the need for additional labels.


What is EAN/UPC, GS1-128 or DataBar code system?

EAN/UPC, GS1-128 or DataBar code systems are different data carriers of the GS1 system.

They can carry various types of information to meet various application requirements1. The EAN/UPC code system is a fixed-length, meaningless barcode that is mainly used for product identification.

The GS1-128 code system is a variable-length barcode that is mainly used for special product identification, shipping information, etc.

DataBar code system is a barcode suitable for marking small and difficult-to-mark products, and can store information including weight, price, etc.


Who developed the ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode standard? Why develop this standard?

The ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode is a barcode used to identify shipping containers, with a code length of 14 digits.

The ITF-14 barcode standard was developed by the International Article Numbering Society (GS1) to improve the efficiency and accuracy of supply chain management.

ITF-14 barcodes can be in two formats: ITF-14 or EAN/UCC-128.


What is the difference between the ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode and the EAN-13 barcode?

There are some differences between EAN-13 code and ITF-14 code in terms of digital character set, capacity, application scenarios, etc.

The EAN-13 code can only hold 13 numeric characters, while the ITF-14 code can hold more numeric characters.

The EAN-13 code is used in the retail stage of goods, and the ITF-14 code is used in the storage, transportation and wholesale of goods.

The EAN-13 code has higher requirements for barcode printing accuracy, and the ITF-14 code is suitable for direct printing on materials whose surfaces are not smooth enough.

The ITF-14 code has 14 digits, the last digit of which is the check digit, and the EAN-13 code has 13 digits, of which the last digit is the check digit.

The first digit of the ITF-14 code is used to indicate the packaging type, and the first digit of the EAN-13 code is used to indicate the country or region code.

The ITF-14 code uses the barcode format of interleaved 25 codes and a rectangular protective frame, and the EAN-13 code uses the barcode format of the European Product Number.


ITF-14 barcodes can be in two formats: What are ITF-14 or EAN/UCC-128?

ITF-14 is a cross-digit code with 14 digits surrounded by a rectangular protective frame. It is suitable for direct printing on packaging materials that are not smooth or easily deformed.

EAN/UCC-128 is a one-dimensional barcode consisting of an application identifier (AI) and data fields separated by brackets, which can represent more information, such as batch number, production date, etc.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of the ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode?


Strong fault tolerance: able to resist the impact of contamination, wear, etc. on the barcode to a certain extent.

Compact: It can store a large amount of information in a small space and has high practical value for products with limited packaging space.


Limited amplification factor: National standards stipulate that the amplification factor of ITF-14 barcode symbols cannot be higher than 1.0, so when designing ITF-14 barcodes, attention should be paid to controlling the size of the symbols.

High requirements for the left and right blank areas: National standards stipulate that the left and right blank areas of the ITF-14 barcode symbol must be no less than 10X. Therefore, when designing the ITF-14 barcode, the width of the left and right blank areas of the symbol must be appropriately increased consciously to ensure that the printed The left and right blank areas of ITF-14 barcode symbols meet the requirements.


Which countries use ITF-14 barcodes?

The ITF-14 barcode is a barcode used to mark storage and transportation packaged goods. It is a code structure of the Global Trade Item Code GTIN.

ITF-14 barcodes are used in many countries or regions around the world, such as China, the United States, Europe, etc.


An application example of ITF-14 (SCC-14) barcode

Assume that the EAN-13 barcode of a product is 6901234567890, which indicates the single product level of the product.
If you want to package the product into a box of 24 pieces, you can use the ITF-14 barcode to indicate the box level. The method is to add a packaging indicator, such as 1, in front of the EAN-13 barcode to indicate quantitative packaging, and then generate ITF- 14 barcodes.

This way, the item's packaging unit can be identified and tracked by scanning or manually entering the ITF-14 barcode.
