e-label - Editor - QR Codes - Creating GS1 Digital Link e-label Codes - Enterprise

As part of our overarching GS1 strategy, the e-label Enterprise portal has advanced its GS1 Digital Link compliance. Users now have the option to generate GS1 Digital Link codes during the code creation process. To utilize this feature, simply access the QR Code manager within the e-label management tool and choose the relevant code type from the dropdown menu. Below are the steps to guide you through this process:

1. Log in our platform

2. Then, go to the QR Manager section:

3. Locate the product and then Click on "generate code" link along with the "edit e-label" button.  You are generating a new regular QR code:

  • GTIN stands for "Global Trade Item Number." It is a unique identifier for trade items, developed by GS1. GTINs are used to identify products, services, or items in supply chains, and they play a crucial role in facilitating efficient and accurate information exchange between trading partners. The GTIN in the Scantrust context has to be a 14-digit numeric data structure, but it can also be expressed in 8, 12, or 13 digits.
  • Additionally, the GS1 information is encoded via GS1 Application Identifiers (GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) which are considered as primary identification keys for GS1 Digital Link URI. In this case, we let you create two: Lot or Batch number, and the CPV (Consumer Product Variant).
  • The Lot number can be typed manually or created automatically with the button located on the right side of the box.
  • The CPV (Consumer Product Variant) should be numeric and could be, for instance: The vintage year.
