GS1 Bulgaria actively promotes measures against the unauthorised usage of barcode numbers starting with 380 (Bulgaria’s country prefix).
Everybody can easily check a barcode starting with 380 using the mobile application BG Barcode. The application is available for download on Google Play for Android and also on App Store for iOS. The main purpose of BG Barcode is to provide quality product data in a pleasant and convenient form for the end user which can help in his choice and better information when buying. For food products, the application allows personalization by setting an alarm when an item contains a dangerous allergen for the consumer.
By scanning a product starting with 380, marked with an unauthorized barcode, an “invalid barcode” a warning message is received. One can take a photo and send an alert through the BG Barcode application to the GS1 Bulgaria team in order to resolve the specific case.
