Nicelabel – GS1                                                 STILL & SSCC: Labelling Logistic Units

                   When creating an SSCC, you can use your current GS1 company prefix,
                   and do not need a new one.

                                       With a 7-digit GS1 Company Prefix, you can assign
                     Fun Fact:        10 billion SSCCs (1-digit Extension Digit 9-digit Serial

                                      Reference). With a 9-digit GS1 Company Prefix, you can
                                      assign 100 million SSCCs (1-digit Extension Digit  7-digit
                                      Serial Reference). That’s a lot of shipments or logistics
                                      units that can be tracked!

                   The Applicator Identifer (00) indicates that the GS1 Application Identifer
                   data field an SSCC. When printed in a barcode the correct symbology is
                   GS1-128. It may also be encoded using an EPC tag.

                                 SSCC is an 18-digit numerical number, including Check Digit. The
                      Note       combined lenght of the Extension Digit, GS1 Company Prefix, and

                                 Serial Reference will always total 17 digits.

                   APPLICATION IDENTIFIER (AI): AI 00 to indicate an SSCC

                   EXTENSION DIGIT: Used to increase the capacity of the Serial Reference
                   within the SSCC. It is assigned by the company that constructs the SSCC
                   and ranges from zero to nine.
