Barcoding Status

As the global standard for identifying titles, ISBNs (International Standard Book Numbers) are used worldwide as a unique identifier for books, and are used to simplify distribution and purchase of books throughout the global supply chain. TheWSO has been registering published products for international distribution, and is redesigning existing products to make them compliant with ISBN/Bar Code standards. Depending on the supplier (Amazon/Donnelly/ACA), a different type of product coding will be required for medallions and other miscellaneous bundled-only sales items such as signs and laminated slogans.
