Online CBA: Can Products Manufactured in China Use UPC (Universal Product Code) Registered Offshore?
Q: Can Products Manufactured in China Use UPC (Universal Product Code) Registered Offshore?
A: Products manufactured in the Chinese mainland can use UPC registered offshore. Manufacturers have to present relevant documents such as the registration certification of the product barcode and letter of authorisation to the local branch of Article Numbering Center of China (ANCC, or GS1 China) for record filing. The branch will then submit the documents to ANCC.
