This is an example of a composite barcode, which is a variation of a postal code. This barcode is composite because it uses 2 or more barcode standards. It uses EAN, Postnet, USPS ZIP code, and UPC standards.
The plan is to release a new, improved system that will handle both ZIP codes and delivery destinations. The plan calls for the integration of delivery destination addresses with ZIP code designations through the use of a single postal barcode.
A special type of barcode is an electronic mail address. The box contains a set of nine bi-directional typebars that together make the address. You use the typebars to write the text of the electronic address in a language specified by the postal authority.
The Postal Codes are shown in the same way as the FNC codes, but the application identifier of the BarCoder ActiveX control is assigned by the postal administration directly, so the application identifier is 39 to indicate a country in a flat rate zone, for example \"DE\", \"UK\" or \"PL\". The country (e.g. DE) and the flat rate zone of the destination (e.g. \"DE\") are expressed together in bar code.
Sources of barcode data are called \"series\". A series is defined by the manufacturer, the label format (e.g. UPC or EAN/ISBN), the creator/generation method of the barcode and of the postal code. 7211a4ac4a
