GS1 DataBar Stacked

GS1 DataBar Stacked is a fixed-length, stacked linear barcode symbology that can be used to encode a GTIN-14 for in-house applications.

Also known as: RSS-14 Stacked.


  • GS1 DataBar Truncated is a variant of GS1 DataBar Stacked for use where a shorter, wider symbol is required.
  • GS1 DataBar Stacked Composite is a variant of GS1 DataBar Stacked that should be used when a CC-A or CC-B GS1 composite 2D component is required.

Standards: ISO/IEC 24724, ITS Reduced Space Symbology (RSS), AIM ISS - Reduced Space Symbology (RSS), GS1 General Specifications.

Data and Options

  • The data field input is provided in GS1 Application Identifier standard format and must be a solitary AI (01) with thirteen or fourteen digits of a GTIN, i.e. (01)....
  • If thirteen digits of AI (01) data are supplied then the check digit is calculated automatically, otherwise the digits are encoded as supplied.
  • The linkage option signifies the presence of a GS1 composite 2D component.


Identical symbols, input provided with and without a check digit:
