ENA-8 Introduction

This page concerns basic information of ENA-8 and its barcode generating components.

ENA-8 Overview

EAN-8 is a linear barcode, derived from EAN-13. It is issued for small packaged products when a normal EAN-13 barcode image would be too large. EAN-8 is also known as European Article Number 8, EAN-8 Supplement 5/Five-digit Add-On, EAN-8 Supplement 2/Two-digit Add-On, EAN-8+5, EAN-8+2, EAN8, EAN8+5, EAN13+2, UPC-8, GTIN-8, GS1-8, EAN/UCC-8.

EAN-8 Structure

EAN-8 shares structure similarity with ENA-13.



An EAN-8 barcode is divided into three areas:
  • Number System: It composed of two or three digits, which is essentially a country code. Each country has a numbering authority which assigns manufacturer codes to companies within its jurisdiction.
  • Product Code: It is composed of five or four digits, which is a unique code assigned by the manufacture. And manufacturers can assign their product codes freely as long as they do not repeat their own product codes.
  • Check Digit: It is an additional digit used to verify the accuracy of the data encoded.

EAN-8 Barcode Size Setting

As for barcode size, two factors should be taken into consideration, namely, image width and height. EAN-8 image width and height can be computed from specific expressions. To make things easier, our EAN-8 generating components can do this for you according to your property settings.

Please obtain more information from EAN-8 size setting instruction.


EAN-8 Valid Data Scope

Like EAN-13, EAN-8 also has character sets A, B, C, and it is capable of encoding:
  • Numeric digits: 0 to 9

EAN-8 Add-On or Supplement Data

The Add-On Symbols were designed to encode supplementary information of the main EAN-8 barcode image on periodicals, hardback, and paperback books. Like EAN-13, EAN-8 supplement data can be 2 or 5 digits. And the human readable text should be above the barcode image.
