UPC numbers are important to the apparel industry. They are
utilized to identify products, cartons, etc.
The Universal Product Code (UPC) is a barcode
symbology that is widely used in the United States, Canada, United
Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and in other countries for tracking
trade items in stores. UPC (technically refers to UPC-A) consists of 12
numerical digits, that are uniquely assigned to each trade item. Along
with the related EAN barcode, the UPC is the barcode mainly used for
scanning of trade items at the point of sale, per GS1 specifications.

UPC data structures are a component of GTINs and follow the global
GS1 specification, which is based on international standards. But some
retailers (clothing, furniture) do not use the GS1 system (rather other
barcode symbologies or article number systems). On the other hand, some
retailers use the EAN/UPC barcode symbology, but without using a GTIN
(for products, brands, sold at such retailers only).
