Barcode Industry Standards

Barcode Industry Standards are developed by specific industries and government groups to describe how certain symbologies will be used in their applications.  For instance, ISBN is standard for the labeling of books.  These associations or groups specify how data is encoded into the barcode and they can even impose rules regulating  the length of a barcode.  Essentially, barcode industry standards define how to use a barcode symbology in a particular application or industry.  Here are a few examples of barcode industry standards and what industry groups they are used in:
