EAN/JAN-8 Barcode

EAN-8 is an EAN/UPC symbology barcode and is derived from the longer EAN-13 code. It was introduced for use on small packages where an EAN-13 barcode would be too large. It usually carries a GTIN-8.

Also known as: UCC-8, JAN-8.

EAN-8 encodes eight numbers, consisting of two country-code digits, five data digits, and one check digit.
