Look at

**the bar**. According to the European standard, it must contain 13 digits. The first two identify the country, the next five -**code****code**of the enterprise, then the five digits of the encrypted consumer properties (the name of the product, consumer characteristics, weight, composition, color).2

Calculate the last digit

2. Multiply result by 3: 22х3=66;

3. The addition of numbers that are located at odd places, except the last one: 4+2+0+1+3+0=10;

4. Addition sums of numbers: 66+10=76;

5. Remove the first digit: 76-70=6;

6. Subtract the resulting number from 10: 10-6=4.The checksum is 4, which corresponds to the last digit

**of the bar**and control, which is designed to determine the authentication**code****code**. For this you need to add up the numbers that stand on even ground. This amount and multiply by three. Then add the numbers that are located at odd places, except the last. Fold the two results. Drop from the sum of the first digit. Of the ten, subtract the last result. You should get a number that is equal to the last control. Therefore, before you original product. If it did not happen, most likely the goods are fake.For example, take**the bar**"4823061430014":1. The addition of numbers that are located in even places: 8+3+6+4+0+1=22;**code**2. Multiply result by 3: 22х3=66;

3. The addition of numbers that are located at odd places, except the last one: 4+2+0+1+3+0=10;

4. Addition sums of numbers: 66+10=76;

5. Remove the first digit: 76-70=6;

6. Subtract the resulting number from 10: 10-6=4.The checksum is 4, which corresponds to the last digit

**of the bar**.**code**Note

Russia fixed codes 460-469, but is only 460. The rest is locked, if you find codes from 461 to 469, it is a fake.

Useful advice

The bar code does not prove the quality of the product. The digit does not always coincide with the number of country of origin.

The barcode can cause the manufacturer, brand owner or importer. In the barcode are not hidden consumer properties of the goods.

If there is no code in the system GEPIR, it does not mean that the goods are fake. The legislation of some countries allows manufacturers the choice of providing the data.
