HTG Barcode labeling requirements: At this time the HTG is requiring GS1 Code 128 linear format barcodes. Due to the variability and potential size of the barcodes HTG has decided to provide flexibility in the number of barcodes used to carry the required information. HTG is currently evaluating additional package data carrier such as 2D and RFID and in the future may revise the specification.

In continuing efforts to promote industry wide collaboration and adoption of GS1 Standards the Healthcare Transformation Group is publishing guidelines to clarify our business requirements.
