Barcode Questions.

Musuku is a legitimate issuer of barcodes.

All of the numbers we sell were issued by the Uniform Code Council (UCC), currently known as GS1, and all of the numbers were purchased prior to August 28, 2002.

Musuku sells legal and legitimate barcode numbers

All of the barcode number Musuku sells were originally issued by the UCC (Uniform Code Council), known today as GS1, and were issued prior to August 28, 2002. That date is important because that’s when GS1 started sending out renewal notices demanding that past prefix holders pay renewal fees and agree to the new terms and conditions. Eventually, a class action suit was filed against GS1, in the State of Washington, and GS1 lost. All prefix owners prior to August 28, 2002 became discharged from any GS1’s renewal fees and a new codified agreement. The settlement agreement indicates that if a prefix holder paid a membership fee to the UCC prior to August 28, 2002, the prefix holder will be entitled to perpetual membership in the UCC and not be obligated to pay annual renewal fees to the UCC, either now or in the future. Also, the Terms and Conditions of the original ownership agreement with the prefix holder and the UCC, was deemed null and void. All of the barcodes sold by Musuku are included in the terms and conditions as stated above and therefore, all of our barcodes are legal and legitimate.

Barcodes has been verified and approved by George Laurer.

We offer the lowest prices for barcode numbers

Musuku offers the most affordable prices for barcodes in South Africa and our barcodes do not expire and there is no annual fee to be paid.

No registration required

Musuku does not require you to register with us and you are not required to tell us details of your products.

Why do some retailers ask for GS1 certificate?

What we have found is that the majority of these companies that require the GS1 certificates belong to the GS1 Management Board Members; therefore, that is why they want you to purchase your barcodes directly from GS1.

Who is GS1?

They are a non-profit association that sells new barcode numbers.

Can you outright barcodes from GS1?

No, basically you will be “renting” the barcode numbers. GS1 charges renewal fees every year. But because barcodes issued by Musuku were issued by GS1 before August 28, 2002 you will not need to pay GS1 or Musuku any annual fees. You buy barcodes from Musuku they are yours, you own them forever and will never have to pay again
