About the IBNREG Database

IBNREG – the International Barcode Registry – is a unique, cloud-based service that gives access to contact information and/or product information for companies that are using registered barcodes.

The barcodes used by these companies are legally purchased and independently registered. Product information is uploaded by the company directly, so it can be trusted to be accurate.

By simply typing a product barcode number into IBNREG, anyone can find the owner’s contact information and/or product information for that barcode number.

Who Uses IBNREG?

How do I register my barcode numbers on the IBNREG Database?

You can purchase registration for your barcode number(s) from International Barcodes Ltd here: https://internationalbarcodes.com/barcode-registration/

You will need to send proof that you are the owner of your barcode number(s) before you’ll be able to register them (e.g. an email or receipt from the company you purchased the barcodes from).

If your barcode number(s) were issued by a member of the International Barcodes Network then they will be eligible for free registration, and you can register your barcode number(s) here: https://barcodesdatabase.org/barcode-registration/ (this information will feed through to ibnreg.org).
