EAN – Check digit tools

International Article Number – Wikipedia

The term European Article Number is used today only as the acronym EAN and refers to the barcode from the EAN/UPC symbology.

The EAN barcode is available in two variants:

  • EAN-13 (standard with 13-digit number)
  • EAN-8 (for small products with an 8-digit number)

Below each symbol is the identification number in plain text as a backup in case the barcode is not readable.
