Databar Bar Code Seminar

Databar (formally RSS) Bar Code Seminar


This practical 1.5-hour seminar is designed to provide an understanding of DataBar (formally RSS) bar codes. The seminar is focused on explaining the many different types of DataBar Bar Codes and where each is used. This includes usage in various levels of packaging (pallet, carton, container, and product) in the retail supply chain and pharmaceutical requirements (including FDA part 21).

Many customers choose to add this seminar to our standard Bar Code Quality seminar. Individually each seminar is $75, but by combining the two seminars the cost is only $100.

This seminar was developed for a wide range of employees from Pre-press Staff to Press Operators to Quality/ISO Managers to Plant Managers.
