This paper covers how bar code and RFID support compliance with regulations such as the Bioterrorism Act, EU Food Law, and The Food Safety Enhancement Act (H.R. 2749), traditional uses and advantages of bar code data collection and emerging technologies and standards, including Reduced Space Symbology (RSS) bar codes, Electronic Product Code (EPC) RFID technology, and the GS1 Global Traceability Standard (GS1 Databar).

A global leader respected for innovation and reliability, Zebra offers technologies that illuminate organizations’ operational events involving their assets, people and transactions, allowing them to see opportunities to create new value. We call it the Visible Value Chain.

Zebra’s extensive portfolio of marking and printing technologies, including barcode, RFID, GPS and sensoring, turns the physical into the digital to give operational events a virtual voice. This enables organizations to know in real time the location, condition, timing and accuracy of the events occurring throughout their value chain. Once the events are seen, organizations can create new value from what is already there.
