This directory has been established to support companies that legally resell U.P.C. numbers and their customers. A major problem facing the reselling industry and the entrepreneurs that buy from them, is the lack of a central data base containing numbers, addresses, and contact information. Without an authoritative and trustworthy source for this information retailers are reluctant to accept products labeled with these symbols and entrepreneurs are hesitant purchase numbers from resellers. Unfortunately because of the high cost of purchasing a block of numbers from GS1, the entrepreneur gives up on his project and his product does not come to the market place.
GS1, the source of the original prefix numbers, only supplies information pertaining to the reseller's original registered information. This directory on the other hand, provides information pertaining to the original prefix owner, the present reseller, the entrepreneur, and his product. A retail outlet or store can be assured that if one finds a number in our data base that we have made an assiduous effort to verify the authenticity of the number. Buyers of numbers can verify the fact that it is not a duplicate number and/or that his number was not pirated, stolen, or issued in error.
