Books and Magazines


GS1 supports the use of ISSN and ISBN numbering for use with books and magazines.

The ISSN and ISBN are suitable for encoding in a GS1 compliant barcode.

In New Zealand these numbers are issued by the National Library of New Zealand. Obtain your number by contacting the National Library.
